The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) has announced it has elected Rachel Croft, a fourth grade teacher at Bordewich Bray Elementary School in the Carson City School District, as a 2019 Emerging Leader.
They say the Emerging Leaders program recognizes and prepares educators to influence education programs, policy, and practice both on the local and national levels.
“Rachel joins a powerful community of educators who are leading the field of education," said Ronn Nozoe, ASCD Interim CEO and Executive Director. "ASCD's Emerging Leader program provides a powerful stepping stone for greater leadership opportunities and influence in schools across the country and around the world."
The ASCD says Rachel was selected as a 2019 Emerging Leader alongside 24 fellow administrators, faculty members, teachers, instructional coaches, and learning specialists.
They say those elected have been in the education profession for 5-15 years.
ASCD says following the nomination process, this year's leaders were chosen by an advisory panel composed of ASCD staff, education thought leaders, and Emerging Leader alumni.
They say all Emerging Leaders are enrolled in the program for two years.
