Louisiana Teacher Leaders


The Louisiana Teacher Leaders make up a group of over 5,000 outstanding educators from around the state who are focused on high expectations for students. This group was born out of three core beliefs:

  • Those closest to students are best positioned to make instructional decisions;
  • The state has a role in providing resources and training directly to teachers;
  • Teacher Leaders are a powerful voice in training fellow teachers.

The Department offers Teacher Leaders a blend of high quality tools and resources along with in-person and virtual trainings to help them achieve ambitious results with their students.
