2018 Rising School Leaders Cohort
Next to the teacher in the classroom, the school building leader has the most significant impact on a student’s achievement and future trajectory. At Teach For America, we believe that we are charged to help develop and expand the leadership of our alumni in New Jersey. In pursuit of this goal, Teach For America is again offering a New Jersey Rising School Leader Cohort program which is designed to help prepare New Jersey alumni for significant leadership positions in K-12 school settings.
The fellowship is an February to April program, designed to accelerate the leadership development of participants in key areas and according to the Dimensions of an Excellent School Framework. Participants will learn from current school leaders and receive one on one guidance from our Cohort Leader. For more details on how to apply email:

The TFA-NJ CRP Fellowship is for corps members, alumni, and non-TFA teachers who want to grow in their application of culturally relevant pedagogy and teaching for social justice, and be part of a tight group of like-minded teachers. We’ll meet two Thursday evenings per month for 2 hour sessions where dinner will be provided, and we will have beginning and end of year mini-retreats over a weekend. Current CMs who participate will be exempt from the 7 TFA PD requirements, and all participants will receive a certificate. Last year, 100% of fellows surveyed said they found the experience enjoyable and beneficial, and would recommend it to fellow CMs and alumni.

As the TFA Camden family kicks off the 2017-2018 school year, we are excited to introduce a professional development opportunity open to alumni, corps members and other Camden educators. After two highly successful years in North Jersey, Camden is kicking off its own Culturally Relevant Pedagogy Fellowship. This is for teachers who want to grow in their application of culturally relevant pedagogy and teaching for social justice, and be part of a committed community of educators. We’ll meet approximately two Monday evenings per month for 2 hour sessions where dinner will be provided, and we will have beginning and end of year mini-retreats over a weekend. The CRP Fellowship will be hosted by Director, TLD Morgan Craig and two incredible leaders- Rodolfo Coplin (NJ ’13) and Yvanna Saint-Fort (NJ ’16). Last year, 100% of fellows surveyed said they found the experience enjoyable and beneficial, and would recommend it to fellow CMs and alumni.
