I am humbled, honored, and greatly inspired to be informed last week that I will be one of 10 superintendents and assistant superintendents from around the country (over 200 entries) selected to be part of cohort #3 in the Lexington Institute’s LELA Fellowship.
The LELA fellowship is a unique and highly selective 6-month program designed to expose district leaders to personalized learning and facilitate the first steps to implementation. We are working in my district, West Oso ISD, to implement a blended learning model that seeks to offer our students a more personalized learning experience with more control over the pace, path, place, and time they learn and are able to demonstrate mastery. Being a part of this LELA Fellowship will allow me to be a part of a dynamic team of educational leaders and cutting edge thinkers in changing the very landscape of K-12 education. We really are creating a new K-12 ecosystem for learning!
I will use my blog to document our work and share ground-breaking ideas, research, and connections to blended learning and personalized learning models. I hope it will prove useful to you and your work as a teacher, leader, administrator, or education advocate!
