Alexandria, VA (06/02/2015)—ASCD is pleased to announce the selection of 46 educators for its 2015 class of Emerging Leaders. The Emerging Leaders program recognizes and prepares young, promising educators to influence education programs, policy, and practice on both the local and national levels. To view the entire list of the 2015 Emerging Leaders, visit the Emerging Leader directory.
“It is my pleasure to be the first to congratulate ASCD’s 2015 class of Emerging Leaders,” said Judy Seltz, ASCD executive director. “This is an impressive group of committed educators who have applied their craft in all areas of education, demonstrated strong results in diverse learning environments, and shown a commitment to leadership in the field. I know they will take full advantage of the opportunities the Emerging Leaders program offers, and ASCD looks forward to supporting their continued growth.”
All Emerging Leaders are enrolled in the program for two years and will help to advance ASCD’s positions and values; participate in shaping education policy and advocating for the whole child; and explore multiple ASCD leadership pathways. Throughout the program, Emerging Leaders will have the opportunity to serve on ASCD committees, host networking events for educators, and contribute to ASCD publications such as Educational Leadership® magazine and the Inservice blog.
The 2015 Emerging Leader class is the largest since the program’s inception in 2005 and is diverse both professionally and regionally. The class includes educators from 21 states, Indonesia, and Pakistan who hold a variety of roles, including principal, teacher, consultant, curriculum director, and administrator.
“I’m excited to meet the members of the 2015 Emerging Leader class and welcome them to the program,” said Meghan Everette, a 2014 ASCD Emerging Leader. “This program truly empowers educators to make of it whatever they wish, and I know this new class, like me, will take advantage of every available opportunity. My practice has been enriched by each of my fellow Emerging Leaders over the past year, and I look forward to continued growth as I learn from the new group’s fresh ideas and perspectives.”
Educators selected for the Emerging Leaders program have been in the education profession for 5 to 15 years; demonstrate a passion for teaching, learning, and leadership; exhibit a broad range of diversity in position, location, cultural background, and perspective; hold promise as leaders; and are committed to ASCD’s beliefs and to pursuing leadership opportunities.
