Individual Fellowship School Leader Endorsement, DC
The Leading Educators Fellowship is a highly competitive program that develops the capacity of teacher leaders. We have learned over the years that teacher leaders have a much higher chance of success when they have garnered the support of their School Leaders to reach their goals. To that end, we ask School Leaders to provide an endorsement of individual candidates for the Fellowship.*
Through the School Leader Endorsement we hope to learn more about why you believe your teacher leader is a great candidate for the Fellowship. Specifically, we hope to see:
- How the candidate has impacted student achievement and the performance of other adults at your school
- What leadership role that the candidate will play next year
- How the program expectations align with your expectations as a School Leader
The School Leader Endorsement is considered part of the candidate’s application, and therefore it is important that you are honest in your recommendation of the candidate and provide as much information as you can.
* Please note that all candidates for the Leading Educators Fellowship must have responsibility for impacting the student results of at least two other faculty members at the school. For a detailed list of all program expectations, please click on the Candidates link above.
The Cohort 2016 Fellowship Application Season has ended. Check back this fall to join Cohort 2017!
We at Leading Educators recognize that you balance many important responsibilities and thank you for your investment and time in endorsing candidates.
