New Director for 2018-2019: Kathy Crawford
By, Tim Johnson
I am excited to share that Kathy Crawford will be the new Director of Denver Fellows with a to-be-determined early summer 2018 start date.  Kathy has been a key leader within the Denver Fellows program for the last 5 years and came to Denver Fellows with experience as a district leader, school leader and teacher.

Some of the recent highlights of Kathy’s work include:

  • Significantly higher student growth for participating students vs. matched students across all elementary school grades served by Math Fellows in 2016-2017
  • Ensuring our professional learning is based in deliberate practice, culminating in last summer’s pentathlon
  • Leading shifts on use of data, observation feedback and lesson planning as we work to provide better services to kids and families

Kathy is committed to the mission, vision and values of Denver Fellows and Denver Public Schools, focused keenly on improving student outcomes and always leads strategically and with urgency.

Kathy and I will be working closely over the next couple of months to ensure a smooth transition and Kathy will be taking the lead with the central team and coordinators in regards to hiring and planning for 2018-2019.  Kathy will take over program communications this summer so expect to hear from her soon!
