Award-winning Ph.D. candidate selected for school leader fellowship
Angela Mansfield, a literacy education Ph.D. student, was one out of the three students selected by Charter School Partners, a Minnesota-based non-profit charter support group, to go through a rigorous two-year school leader fellowship. The fellowship will culminate in the opening of high-performing, achievement-gap closing urban charter schools in the Twin Cities.
Mansfield, a Milken Educator Award Recipient, has been working with the Minneapolis Public Schools since 1997 as an exemplary teacher, a Reading First Literacy Coordinator, and, most recently, as a TAP mentor, providing instructional coaching to teachers to improve their performance as part of the well-regarded national System for Teacher and Student Advancement. Angela received a B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA. and an M.Ed in literacy ('07) from CEHD.
