Teacher Leadership Fellowship

2023-2024 Overview

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) Teacher Leadership Fellowship (TLF) is a highly selective two-year 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 monthly from June 2023-June 2024, and fellows will have the opportunity to continue their fellowship for a second year.
