Four
Indianapolis Public Schools educators are being recognized nationally for their
innovative approach in the classroom!

 

The teachers
who will represent IPS at the University of Indianapolis as Woodrow Wilson
Fellows in Education Leadership are:

  

  • Jodi
    Morrow, Instructional Coach, Center for Inquiry School 2.

  • Amy Wackerly, Fourth-Grade Teacher, Center for Inquiry School 2.
  • Grace Wallace, Science Teacher, George Washington
    High School.
  • Charonda Woods, Math Coach, George Washington
    High School.

 

The MBA fellowship’s Indiana initiative started
in 2014 with the generous support of the Lilly Endowment. The program blends
clinical experience in schools with rigorous coursework in business to equip
fellows with the tools to guide their schools and districts through the ever-changing
educational landscape. Special attention is given to support innovation,
analytics and evidence-based practices, increasing student achievement and
improving educational quality.

“It is an honor as an administrator
to support teachers as they choose and develop in leadership roles,” said
CFI 70 Principal Christine Collier. “We are thrilled that two CFI teachers, Amy
and Jodi, have been selected as Woodrow Wilson fellows. Their teacher
leadership has been an asset to CFI and we look forward to the great things to
come from their work as fellows.”

 

Woodrow Wilson Fellows are selected from a competitive pool of
nominees recommended by their schools and districts across the state. Benefits
of the fellowship include stipends to cover tuition and materials, along with
executive coaching opportunities. In return, fellows make a three-year
commitment to sreve in an educational leadership role. We are proud of these
four talented educational leaders, and look forward to the positive effects
their training will have on our district in years to come!
