Fellows 21-22

A LEADERSHIP PROGRAM FOCUSED ON EQUITABLE MINDSETS AND PRACTICES FOR EARLY LEARNING, ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS, MATHEMATICS, AND SCIENCE EDUCATORS

Brought to you by OSPI and the Association of Educational Service Districts

Fellows are teacher leaders, instructional coaches, administrators, and curriculum specialists across our 35 districts

The NWESD serves a broad region with growing diversity amongst our students. Their success relies on regional teacher leadership that reflects the diversity of our students and we encourage all educators to consider how they can best contribute to our shared goals and learning.

Fellows have been a great encouragement to me over this last year and a half. Teaching in a small school with a math department of one gets lonely. I appreciate the collaboration and new ideas the Fellows meetings have provided. I have also appreciated the networking with other teachers. I have gleaned news ideas and programs from other teacher in the Fellows network and implemented them in my school, which has resulted in a better education for my students.  – Fellow 2020-2021
