TEA 2024-2025 Teacher Leadership Fellowship Overview

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) Teacher Leadership Fellowship (TLF) is a highly selective yearlong fellowship designed to strengthen teacher leadership pathways at the state level and increase meaningful opportunities for teachers to shape the profession.   

The TLF will meet for an in-person kickoff in Austin in July 2024, and will meet virtually each month from August 2024-June 2025. Fellows will have the opportunity to continue their fellowship for a second year. Teachers in the fellowship will develop their leadership skills, collaborate with educators across the state, and provide timely input to TEA staff on state-level programs and practices. 

All travel expenses for teachers will be covered, and teachers will receive a $1,500 stipend for their participation in the fellowship.
