The Silver Lake College Graduate Education Programs of Administrator Leadership and Teacher Leadership offer Master of Arts in Education degrees, provide professional development for teachers and administrators and meet the requirements for the #316 Reading Teacher licensure and for four school administration licensures in the state of Wisconsin -- #51 K-12 Principal, #80 Director of Special Education and Pupil Services, #10 Director of Instruction, #08 School Business Administrator.
Each component of the Graduate Education competency-based programs supports and builds upon the Silver Lake College Teacher Education Program core dimensions of scholarship/leadership, commitment to others and reflective practice.
The graduate programs are based on the assumption that significant school improvement can only be accomplished if there is informed and effective leadership at all levels within the educational setting. The curriculum is designed to help classroom teachers and potential school administrators acquire the knowledge, skills and dispositions needed for effective leadership in the 21st century, specifically to:
- identify and acquire skills needed to provide more responsive forms of leadership,
- understand how to create organizations which are responsive to individual needs and to cultural diversity,
- acquire and apply new knowledge and use appropriate technologies in the service of human beings.
