This past summer, the Hollyhock Fellowship Program welcomed its inaugural Alumni-in-Residence (AIR) to the 2016 Hollyhock Summer Institute. Eight alumni were chosen to represent the graduating fellows from the 2014 Hollyhock cohort. These amazing teachers hail from eight different high schools in four different regions of the country and bring a wealth of expertise and experience to their AIR responsibilities. While in residence in July 2016, the AIRs facilitated professional development sessions open to all current fellows, hosted community-building activities to deepen the Hollyhock experience, and led evening events and conversations to share how Hollyhock has impacted their classroom practice. During the 2016-2017 school year, the AIRs will continue to work with the Hollyhock project team to develop their skill set as instructional leaders in and beyond the classroom.

2017 Alumni-in-Residence applications will be available in mid-December for all graduates from the 2014 and 2015 Hollyhock Fellow cohorts.
