Introducing the CEL District Leader Fellows

on Jan 29, 2019
CEL Fellows


We are excited to announce the first cohort of CEL District Leader Fellows.

The CEL District Leader Fellowship is a yearlong professional development and work opportunity for district leaders who possess professional expertise that will serve the Center for Educational Leadership’s mission, help the organization expand its current knowledge base, and allow us to better serve our district partners. Our primary goal in creating this fellowship opportunity is to broaden and diversify the network of leaders who can inform CEL’s work based on their professional and personal perspectives. We believe it is critical for us to truly understand the professional journeys of the leaders we support across the country.

We extended this fellowship invitation to six district leaders who impressed us with their current knowledge, skills and disposition for district-level leadership. We believe that these fellows will push our thinking, help us stay current, and ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our district partners.
