Glenn Selected for 2011 Class of Emerging Leaders
Leading national education nonprofit ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) has selected Dr. Kimberly Glenn for its 2011 class of Emerging Leaders. 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 the global leader in providing programs, products, and services that empower educators to support the success of each learner.
Glenn, a native of Chicago, Illinois, completed her undergraduate studies at Alabama State University and her graduate work at Alabama A&M University. She has a Ph.D. in Reading/Literacy. A first-year faculty member at Stillman, Glenn teaches education courses and has been in higher education for five years. "ASCD are leaders in educational improvement and professional development for all students. I look forward to serving the educational community and feel blessed to have this opportunity to contribute globally,” said Glenn.
This year's leaders were invited to apply for the competitive program based on self-nominations and recommendations made by past program participants, current ASCD members, and the greater education community. Once ASCD
received the online applications, an advisory panel composed of ASCD staff, leaders, and Emerging Leader alumni reviewed and selected this year's class.
The leaders are enrolled in the program for two years, and may be paired with an ASCD mentor—a Board of Directors member, Leadership Council member, affiliate leader, or other high-level contributor—who will provide support and help to guide their development. [Your last name] will also attend ASCD's Leader to Leader (L2L) Conference in late July, where he/she will have the chance to grow as ASCD leaders and access new ideas, resources, and best practices from ASCD leaders, presenters, and staff.
Educators have one of the most important callings and we seek to build future leaders through educational innovation. “I’m excited to be a part of ASCD’s Emerging Leaders program, and am looking forward to the opportunity to grow as a professional,” said Glenn. “I believe this program will help me become a more effective educator in my community.”
Emerging Leaders have generally been in the profession between 5 and 15 years, have a marked interest in making a positive contribution to education policy and practice, and have invested in professional growth opportunities aimed at improving student outcomes. The 2011 class of Emerging Leaders is both professionally and regionally diverse, ranging from reading specialists to effectiveness managers, hailing from across the globe and educating students from Iowa to Argentina.
“We are proud to work with this group of outstanding young people and provide them with the tools and connections to help them on their journey to become leaders in education,” said ASCD Executive Director and CEO Gene Carter. “This 2011 group of leaders is such a passionate group of teachers and administrators, and we’re proud to induct them into the program.”
ASCD is the global leader in developing and delivering innovative programs, products, and services that empower educators to support the success of each learner. Comprising 160,000 members—superintendents, principals, teachers, professors, and advocates from more than 140 countries—the ASCD community also includes 58 affiliate organizations. The nonprofit's diverse, nonpartisan membership is its greatest strength, projecting a powerful, unified voice to decision makers around the world.
