District to Announce Inaugural Group of 20 Teacher Fellows

Denver – Many of Denver Public Schools’ (DPS) best educators lead in their schools without leaving the classroom. These Teacher Leadership & Collaboration (TLC) members coach and grow other teachers in their schools while staying true to their first love, teaching their own classroom of kids. The school district has selected 20 of these top teachers to embark on a year-long leadership journey to extend their impact and deepen their instructional know-how. It’s called the Thrive Fellowship. This effort allows DPS’ strongest teacher leaders to collaborate, learn from one another and provide insight to district leaders in order to extend the impact of teacher leadership.

Join the first cohort of fellows as they introduce their leadership journeys and learn about their upcoming year-long work. The fellowship will include monthly learning and collaborative sessions, cohort-based coaching, dialogues with senior leaders, and a capstone-action research project.

Interview opportunities will be available.
