The fellowship is a ten month program designed to accelerate the leadership development of its participants in several key areas: culturally responsive pedagogy, vision-driven leadership, academically rigorous instruction, and instructional coaching.
In order to cultivate these and other important pillars of school leadership, the fellowship includes exposure to education leaders in St. Louis Region and to high quality professional development. This November, the Fellows will be spending three days in Washington, DC visiting excellent schools. Look out for these powerful leaders at a school near you! This phenomenal group of powerful leaders is committed to school leadership as their role to impact change.
