Educational Leadership Overview
Associate Professor: Stewart McCafferty
Assistant Professor: Atkinson Duina
The USM Educational Leadership program recognizes the career paths of education professionals, from classroom teachers who aspire to school leadership to experienced administrators who are pursuing advanced positions at the district level.
Three types of programs provide learning opportunities and credentials for those at different points in their career development paths. Because those who are pursuing advanced study have often identified their own learning goals and needs, programs are designed to draw on the professional experiences of students and to use the real problems they face in their classrooms, schools, and districts as part of the educational program.
