Already a teacher? Imagine reaching the next level of your profession. You’ve worked to mold the futures of your students for years. Isn’t it time you thought about your own future? A master’s degree often means an increased salary (an average of $10,000 more per year), job security, and retirement benefits. You’ll also notice an immediate improvement in your teaching skills. You will become more effective in order to maximize the learning and achievement of your students.
The Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership is a 60-credit program designed for graduate level educators who are presently teachers or administrators in a school setting or have regular weekly access to a school and classrooms. The Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership will provide opportunities for educators to learn and develop skills and strategies in the areas of school management, education law, education finance, and instructional supervision to be an effective leader.
Many learners enter studies not intending to obtain a new degree, but rather to enhance personal and professional knowledge. You may want to advance in your present career, acquire the background to make a career change, or make up academic deficiencies before entering a degree program. Other learners may need to earn professional development credits for satisfying district or state requirements.
The Acacia University Professional Development courses focus on one or two proven, research-based strategies, taught in a way that makes classroom implementation easy and effective. When these strategies are used consistently in the classroom, learning becomes more effective and fun for the students. The strategies encourage higher level thinking skills and can be used in any subject area.
Endorsements are attachments to teaching certificates and indicate areas of specialization. They are for grades K-12 unless otherwise indicated. Once issued, they are automatically renewed with the teaching certificate on which the endorsement was posted. Optional endorsements may be required by local governing boards. All requirements for the endorsement must be met.
