Career Magnet Academy Principal Invited to Join the Tennessee Educator Voice Fellowship

Career Magnet Academy Principal John Faulconer has formally accepted an invitation to join the 2016 inaugural cohort of the Tennessee Educator Voice Fellowship as a founding member.
As a founding Fellow, Faulconer is among 50 outstanding teachers and principals—selected from nearly 100 applicants and 137 nominees—who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence for Tennessee students and a passion for working to advance effective education policies in the best interest of students, educators, families and communities across the state.
The Fellowship will launch as Fellows meet for the first time at a weekend convention taking place on Friday, March 4th, and Saturday, March 5th, at the Sheraton Downtown in Nashville. At the convention, attendees will have the opportunity to build their leadership and advocacy skills; learn about the history of state education policies and how to partner with local legislators; gain insight on how to be effective on social media; and hear best practices regarding how to bring classroom success to life in ways that help change the public perception of education policies.
