Teachers who hold leadership roles outside of their classrooms in addition to their teaching roles have improved job satisfaction—a major indicator of retention. Additionally, providing teachers with expanded leadership roles helps build a pipeline of quality educators within the profession. The New Jersey Department of Education is committed to exploring and promoting successful teacher leader initiatives through its Teacher Leader Network, as well as providing teachers the opportunity to earn a Teacher Leader Endorsement.
