Dominique’s Story


Throughout my years at LEAD I have always had someone who discussed my career progression with me during multiple occasions throughout the year. When I arrived at LEAD, I told my boss at the time, my goal was to become a principal. Not only from him, but through other mentors at LEAD, they have helped me to accomplish that goal.

Semhar’s Story


Teaching with LEAD Public Schools allowed me to use my passion for education to help my community while also working with a diverse student population. It gave me the ability to see LEAD’s mission in action while developing me as a professional and growing my professional network. When I joined LEAD in 2014, I had no idea where it would take me, but I am so grateful for the mentors and friends who all work to improve outcomes for all of our students!

Rewarding Our Teachers

LEAD Public Schools Master Teacher Program

Our Master Teacher pathway is an opportunity to reward our highest-performing teachers and provide them a unique value proposition that allows them to have more influence in their schools and across the entire organization.

Those who earn the Master Teacher designation are afforded an annual professional development budget of up to $1,500 and can earn up to $100,000 in base compensation through performance-based compensation adjustments. Master teachers are expected to complete an annual project linked to student outcomes, provide input on network academic initiatives, and serve as a model classroom for observations and as an ambassador for recruiting.

Join our team

At LEAD, You Matter.

Knowing that teachers are the most important in-school factor for student success, LEAD pairs a performance-based compensation plan with high-quality coaching and development for all teachers and school leaders. We also proudly provide 16 weeks of paid maternity leave for primary caretakers.
