Applications for the 2023 cohort closed Spring 2023
This 2-year fellowship program is designed to develop the capacity of emerging school leaders to lead effective and responsive teams and schools. The program consists of 5 sessions (2 per academic year and 1 over the bridge summer.) The first year will focus on personal leadership development and building foundational knowledge in school-wide culturally responsive pedagogy and practice. The second year will focus on the adaptive and technical skills needed to lead in the context of a school community. At the culmination of each session, each fellow will generate a job-specific artifact of their learning. These artifacts will build upon each other to create a leadership portfolio with strategies, core beliefs, and tools for system impact.
During each session, fellows will engage in whole group instruction, asynchronous reading and reflection, and a community of practice exercise that will allow them to apply their learning alongside their cohort. Fellows will engage in in-person programming with a lead facilitator who brings expertise in school leadership and adult development. They will also engage with a mentor (someone with a strong tenure of experience in a job-alike role).
In addition to the core programming, fellows will be invited to optional community building sessions and additional professional development offered by the Teach For America Twin Cities team.
This is a 2-year experience starting in Fall 2023 – Summer 2025. Applications will close in Spring 2023. For more information, please contact Kevin Hebert, Director of Alumni Impact & Partnerships, Twin Cities.
