Leadership in Science

NCSLA Science Leadership Fellows Program

  School is back in session! At least for the new class selected by the North Carolina Leadership Association (NCSLA) for their esteemed Science Leadership Fellows Program. Standout science educators and leaders from across the state were chosen to join their peers in a program to enhance professional competence and develop the skills necessary to excel in leadership positions in science education. The Fellows Program is open to any science teachers, LEA science supervisors, administrators, informal educators, and even leaders in science industries who also work in science education, and every two years, only a handful of Fellows are chosen. The incoming class of Science Leadership Fellows include stellar educators, administrators, and leaders. Meet this year's class and learn more about the program.
