The Hollyhock Leading Fellows’ Program (HLF) builds on the work of the Hollyhock Fellowship Program (HFP) by selecting a subset of graduating/graduated Hollyhock Fellows who are poised to make a significant difference within and beyond their own classrooms as leading teachers. The HLF program develops teachers’ ability to practice leadership within their school contexts with the goal of improving instruction and creating equitable opportunities for all learners. HLFs engage in a rigorous series of in-person and virtual learning sessions over the course of one year to:
- Engage others in professional learning focused on high-leverage, equitable teaching practices.
- Design learning experiences for adult learners that provide a supportive environment to try out and integrate new teaching practices.
- Center the human experience of all teachers and students with whom they work.
- Understand transformational learning in their contexts and make strategic choices to support it.
Applications for the HLF program will be open on November 1, 2017 and close February 1, 2018. Notification of acceptance will be sent March 1.
