Fellowship Application Opening Today!

We are excited to announce that the application for Fellowship Cohort 2014 will open today! The Fellowship is available to teacher-leaders in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Kansas City, and Washington, D.C.

Interested educators apply this afternoon by clicking on on this link: www.leadingeducators.org/apply 

The application process involves four steps:

Step 1: Online Application

Candidates begin their application for the Leading Educators Fellowship by completing an online application. 

Step 2: Principal Endorsement

An applicant's principal must support the application by submitting a Principal Endorsement online. The Principal Endorsement allows the school leader to describe the leadership role the candidate will play during the following school year and outlines program expectations.

Step 3: Classroom Observation

Based on the Online Application and Principal Endorsement, successful candidates are invited to participate in a 20 to 30 minute classroom observation. This snapshot provides insight into the candidate's instructional skill.

Step 4: Interview and Assessment Days

Candidates that move to the next step in the application process participate in an Interview and Assessment Day. This challenging experience stretches candidates’ leadership skills by engaging them in interviews, role plays, and simulations.
