Apply to the RISE Teacher Leadership Fellowship!

Formerly the UChicago Impact Teacher Leadership Fellowship

Inside every excellent school is a team of incredible teacher leaders, but how did they get to be that way? Just like instructional leadership in the classroom, leading the adults you work with is a craft to be developed. The Rise Fellowship will consist of six monthly seminars (listed to the right!) in which fellows will explore problems of practice and build their toolkits for improving school outcomes.

Learn more about the fellowship here and apply here by 9/30.
