The CADI Institute for Instructional Leaders

Curriculum, Assessment, Design & Instruction

As we work with instructional leaders in current or aspiring roles, we often hear, "I'm not exactly sure what to do!"

While part of any job is learning a new role, we believe there's a need for a learning space designed for instructional development and leadership. We've design CADI to provide ongoing learning support and collaboration for current and aspiring instructional leaders. 

As two former curriculum administrators and secondary department heads, we know what it's like to lead learning in the middle-management positions of directors, principals, and coaches. We also know there's a need to grow our teacher leaders who want to remain in the classroom where they impact students on a daily basis. 

The goal of the CADI Institute is to provide instructional leaders with a tangible framework and community that will enhance current approaches to learning in their districts, schools, and teams. 

Your Teaching Team

Experienced,  Empathetic Leadership

Each of the CADI Institute sessions will be co-led by authors and lead consultants, Sarah Henry and Carrie Rosebrock. Working with over 45 school districts across the United States, Sarah and Carrie have a rich experience of coaching and supporting educational leaders in all environments as they seek to enrich their instructional development of teams.

All participants are expected to join each of the five virtual sessions throughout the year. Sessions will be recorded and shared to members who are unable to attend live. There will be no discount or reimbursement offered to participants unable to make certain live sessions. 


There are no additional materials or purchases required to complete the learning; however, there may be additional learning (such as a short reading or compilation of resources) requested of participants between sessions.  

The virtual learning will occur via Zoom, so it is important that all cohort members log in to Zoom via their own device, even if you are participating in the CADI Institute as a leadership team.
