Teachers & Leaders

WestEd strengthens knowledge and policies to help teachers and administrators meet the rigorous demands of their work. By developing the effectiveness of our nation’s education leaders through research and carefully-tailored programs, we ultimately contribute to improving student learning outcomes.

This work entails developing high-quality practices and programs for comprehensive teacher learning, from preservice through teacher leadership, and conducting research to build visibility and understanding of how the nation’s teachers and education leaders impact student learning.
