Master of Arts in Teaching Leadership (MATL)

Propel your teaching career forward

The Master of Arts in Teaching Leadership (MATL) program helps both novice and experienced teachers become educational leaders in their classrooms, schools, and communities. Our curriculum prepares teacher leaders to transform their personal and professional development. 

Two Pathways, One Program

Our MATL program is designed for:

  • Novice teachers (who are participating in an induction program) and complete our 12-unit professional development series, “Best Practices in Teaching Leadership,” by May of the application year; and
  • Experienced teachers with five or more years in the classroom

You will form a collaborative community with learners in your cohort who offer peer support and progress, and grow with you throughout the program.
