Hixson Middle Instructional Coach Selected As An Emerging Leader In Education

Thursday, September 12, 2019

Jessica Holloway, an instructional coach at Hixson Middle School, has been selected as a 2019 Emerging Leader by ASCD. "The Emerging Leaders program recognizes and prepares young, promising educators to influence education programs, policy and practice on both the local and national levels.  ASCD is a mission-driven nonprofit dedicated to empowering educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching and leading," officials said.
 
“Jessica joins a powerful community of educators who are leading the field of education," said Ronn Nozoe, ASCD interim CEO and executive director. "ASCD's Emerging Leader program provides a powerful stepping stone for greater leadership opportunities and influence in schools across the country and around the world."

Ms. Holloway was selected as a 2019 Emerging Leader alongside 24 fellow administrators, faculty members, teachers, instructional coaches and learning specialists. Those selected for the Emerging Leaders program have been in the education profession for five–15 years; demonstrate a passion for learning, teaching and leading; come from a diverse range of positions, locations, cultural backgrounds and perspectives; hold promise as leaders; and are committed to ASCD's beliefs and to pursuing leadership opportunities.

Following the nomination process, this year's leaders were chosen by an advisory panel composed of ASCD staff, education thought leaders and Emerging Leader alumni.
 
All Emerging Leaders are enrolled in the program for two years and help shape education policy, advocate for the whole child and explore multiple ASCD leadership pathways. Some alumni from the program—including Steven Anderson, Starr Sackstein, Tony Frontier and Pete Hall—have become ASCD authors, while others have become ASCD faculty members and ASCD board members. While in the program, educators can take advantage of numerous opportunities, such as:
 
• Attending the invitation-only Leader to Leader Conference in November, where leaders of various ASCD constituent groups convene to learn, share, and lay the groundwork for further collaboration.

• Presenting at ASCD conferences and events.

• Writing for ASCD publications, including the In-service blog, and contributing written pieces to other outlets.

• Hosting episodes of ASCD Learn Teach Lead Radio, a weekly program produced in partnership with BAM! Radio Network.

Fortunately for him, he came in front ... (click for more)
