DPS’ First Teacher-Leader Fellowship Will Also be Announced

Denver – Denver Public Schools (DPS) will celebrate the five teachers who began in the first cohort of Teacher Leadership and Collaboration (TLC), a teaching model that began five years ago. TLC allows DPS’ best teachers to share their knowledge and experience with fellow teachers to ensure strong instruction while staying true to their first love: teaching their own classroom of kids. Teacher leaders spend half their school day instructing students, and the other half coaching fellow teachers. The teaching model has expanded to almost all district-run schools.

Superintendent Tom Boasberg will also announce a new teacher-leader fellowship, to provide DPS’ strongest teacher leaders with an opportunity to extend their impact and deepen their instructional leadership.

Interview opportunities will be available.
