A teacher might influence 20-100 students in a year but a leader influences 200 to 10,000 or more.
About our Leadership Services
Teachers21 works to build leadership capacity at the classroom, school and district level. From skills training to licensure to ongoing development and support, we are here to help every leader increase their impact through their actions.
Create the climate
Through their interactions, meetings, conversations and the expression of their vision and core values, leaders create the working climate for those around them. The skills to develop an effective and vibrant work environment can be learned and Teachers21 has a track record of developing leaders who have the communication and social emotional insights to foster a dynamic school culture.
Most educators feel fairly isolated, however teaming with peers can be one of the most effective ways to solve problems, foster improvement and rejuvenate learners. By helping leaders recognize and harness the power of teaming and collaboration, Teachers21 builds a leader's capacity to continuously improve.
Measure and sustain progress
Any progress worth achieving is worth measuring and Teachers21 can help leaders develop tools to capture progress and to identify adaptations that can further improve outcomes.
Partners in Leading and Learning
Based on our experience with leadership teams across Massachusetts, Teachers21 is excited to offer a new service, Partners in Learning and Leading. Through this partnership, an experienced Teachers21 consultant, knowledgeable about organizational change, school culture, leadership development, supervision and evaluation, and district operations would work with your team throughout the year to provide ongoing professional development and support for the complex issues that inevitably arise.
Whether you see the need to build leadership capacity, fine-tune skills or just review opportunities to strengthen the organization, we are here to challenge your thinking, support your planning, and provide the support needed to achieve the goals and improvements you seek. Contact us to discuss your needs and share ideas.

Simulations allow leaders to explore decisions and choices they face to improve decision-making, build resiliency and reflect on culture as they navigate real-life simulations together. Teachers21 partners with Ed Leadership SIMS to utilize these simulation experiences to support preK-12 leaders as they work to fully understand the wide array of situations they face, evaluate those situations effectively, identify possible responses, and choose the most appropriate solution.
