More than two dozen Hamilton educators recently completed a yearlong instructional leadership program, and another 30 teachers will go through the program next year.

The Leadership Fellows program, a partnership between the Public Education Foundation and the Hamilton County Department of Education, is heading into its 15 year, foundation officials said in a news release.

More than 450 educators have graduated from the program with 337 fellows serving in diverse leadership roles across the Hamilton County school district, including almost 100 as principals or assistant principals, the news release stated.

"Leadership Fellows was a once-in-a-career opportunity to develop self-awareness as a leader and learn the most current information about how to drive school reform," said Jennifer Brownlee, K-5 literacy coach at Red Bank and Lookout Valley Elementary, in the release.

Leadership Fellows participate in a year of training in addition to their usual teaching duties to prepare for various roles leading positive change in their schools. The program involves monthly workshops, job shadowing, school visits, mentoring and study groups, the news release stated.
