Posted by Community Relations Department on 2/19/2014

English teacher Sean Tessmer from Betty Fairfax and Math teacher April Coleman of South Mountain have been selected to participate in the national Teacher Leadership Initiative, a program to develop a new generation of leaders within the profession.  Tessmer and Coleman are two of 150 educators from six states chosen for the 2014 pilot year.  Participants will engage with an interactive curriculum designed and facilitated by other expert teachers.  Once teacher leaders are prepared, the TLI will mobilize their leadership to help advance student learning, strengthen the teaching profession and provide vision and direction to the National Education Association.
