Teacher selected for innovative group

-A A +A

The Fund for Transforming Education in Kentucky has named 21 teachers to its new Innovative Teacher Leader Cohort, one of which is from Oldham County. Ashley Lamb-Sinclair was chosen from a pool of fifty applicants after undergoing a rigorous review process. Teachers were ultimately chosen for their leadership ability in fostering a collaborative culture, promoting professional learning, and publicizing teaching and learning.

The group – whose main goal will be to promote teacher leadership across the Commonwealth – will first identify what it means to be a teacher leader, which for teachers sometimes means leading in informal ways while remaining in the classroom. They will also take into account the national standards for teacher leadership and research that may or may not support those standards.

The Fund’s Executive Director, Barbara Bellissimo believes this group will bring necessary cohesion and publicity to the work already happening around the idea of teacher leadership.

The group will hold quarterly in-person meetings at different locations across the state, the first being in Somerset this month.
