The Teacher Leader Policy Fellowship provides practicing teachers with information and resources intended to expand their knowledge and understanding of local, state, and national governance, the roles of educational stakeholders, and the importance of teacher leaders taking part in advocacy for student learning and the profession. This partnership between JerseyCAN and We Raise NJ was launched in April 2020. Over a few short weeks, we received more than 60 applications and conducted 20 interviews.
Meet our diverse cohort of teacher leaders who are passionate about students and who represent an array of subject areas, grade levels, and students across the state.
