The Leading Educators Fellowship is a highly competitive program that develops the capacity of teacher leaders.


Principals will have the opportunity to endorse a teacher leader once the candidate submits an online application. Once the candidate submits his or her application, an email will automatically be sent to the principal with a link to the Principal Endorsement form.


Through the Principal Endorsement we hope to learn how the candidate has impacted student achievement and the performance of other adults at your school. We would also like to know about the leadership role that the candidate will play next year. Finally, we want to ensure that the program expectations are clear and align with your expectations as a principal.


Please note that all candidates for the Leading Educators Fellowship must have responsibility for impacting the results of at least two other faculty members at the school. For a detailed list of all program expectations, please visit the Candidate page.
