The national Leading Educators Fellowship is a rigorous professional learning experience designed to increase student achievement through teacher leadership. The Fellowship lays a foundation of formal training in the areas of Developing Self, Coaching Others, Leading Teams, and Driving Initiatives. Fellows then work with a Leadership Coach to develop an Impact Initiative, a project the Fellow implements with a team inside their school designed to improve student learning. Through these experiences, Fellows are able to apply their new learning within their everyday context, lastingly building their skillfulness as teacher leaders and improving the lives of students in their building.
The goal of the Fellowship is to decrease teacher attrition in high-needs schools and contribute to robust systems for impact on student learning at scale. More
