January 15, 2014Brandy Price, Lead Instructor of Ingenium Charter School in Canoga Park, has been selected as a Hope Street Group 2014 National Teacher Fellow. She is one of only 13 educators nationwide to be invited to participate in this fellowship program and is this year's representative from California.
The National Teacher Fellowship program provides fellows, who are either classroom teachers or instructional coaches, with rigorous training, opportunity to network with teachers across the country, and participation in national conversations. Past fellows have written op-eds for major news publications, participated in state and national-level discussions with policymakers on education initiatives, and developed recommendations and solutions for enhancing teacher effectiveness systems as well as college and career ready standards implementation, as outlined in the Teacher Evaluation Playbook.
"We often think of progress as something far in the future, but it can be now," said Price. "Hope Street Group is doing amazing work in preparing education specialists to be advocates for students and for their profession. I want to be part of the movement in translating teacher voices and talent into change."
In addition to her work at Ingenium Charter School, Price has published multiple articles and presented a number of workshops on Common Core State Standards and teacher professional development. She has also earned National Board Certification. Price holds a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Education degree from UCLA.
