Lee Teitel teaches courses on leadership development, partnership and networking, and understanding organizations and how to improve them. He directs an innovative multi-school effort that focuses on bringing high quality teaching and learning to scale in urban and high need districts. The program, the Executive Leadership Program for Educators, builds on several prior initiatives at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, Business School, and Kennedy School of Government, and works with state commissioners of education and school superintendents, along with their leadership teams and key stakeholders. Teitel’s research has focused on principal and superintendent leadership development, including those in “alternate” or nontraditional settings, and on inter-organizational collaboration and other partnerships, especially between schools and universities. As a consultant, he has worked with numerous individual partnerships, networks, and with a statewide school and teacher improvement efforts. Teitel has worked extensively on executive leadership development with principals and school superintendents, collaborating with KSG colleagues Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky to set up superintendent networks in Massachusetts and Ohio, and co-facilitating the Connecticut Superintendent Network with HGSE colleague Richard Elmore. Teitel has taught at HGSE for the last seven years as a part-time lecturer and visiting professor (2004-2005). He comes to the School full-time after more than 15 years in teaching and writing about educational leadership at the University of Massachusetts at Boston, where he was full professor and associate chair of the Department of Leadership in Education.
