Daviess County Math Teacher Chosen as One of 21 ‘Kentucky Teacher Fellows’

jane bryant 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (6/14/13) – Hope Street Group, a national nonprofit organization known for its teacher engagement work, announced today its inaugural cohort of Kentucky Teacher Fellows. These 21 educators were chosen from a large pool of highly competitive candidates and will help voice teacher opinions from across the state on reform efforts. Hailing from 20 districts across the state, the fellows represent some of Kentucky’s most outstanding teachers. Selected for their strong individual commitments to improving learning outcomes for children, the Hope Street Group Kentucky Teacher Fellows will serve as leaders over the next 12 months.

“Today’s announcement of the Kentucky Hope Street Group Teacher Fellows is a tremendous step toward our common commitment to engaging teachers at every level,” said Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday. “This collaborative program will support and reinforce our strategic work around educator effectiveness with the ultimate goal of ensuring all Kentucky students graduate from high school college/career-ready.” By engaging school communities, informing state policy discussions, and participating in professional development and training opportunities, the fellows will work toward elevating the teaching profession and enhancing the quality of primary and secondary classroom education.

Local fellow Jana Bryant, a District Math Coach at Daviess County Public Schools has been chosen for this leadership opportunity.   “I applied for the Hope Group Kentucky Fellowship so that I would have the opportunity to work with passionate educators across the state and the nation to support, to share and to develop resources to transform the teaching profession in ways to prepare all students to become college and career ready,” Bryant said Kentucky Education Association's Executive Director Mary Ann Blankenship supports this work.

“Engaging teachers in the elevation of their profession is core to our work at the Kentucky Education Association. We look forward to continuing our collaborative partnership with Hope Street Group and the Kentucky Teacher Fellows as this program provides additional teacher voice at the decision making table,” she said. "The citizens of Kentucky, as well as the country, watch as the implementation and intersection of teacher effectiveness systems and common core standards begin,” said Hope Street Vice President of Education Dan Cruce. “Hope Street Group and Kentucky stakeholders believe that this intersection must be met with informed educator feedback. The Hope Street Group Kentucky Teacher Fellows have a critical charge ahead to expand engagement of their peers, by their peers. They stand ready to lead in this role as they lead every day in their respective classrooms.”
