The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences would like to introduce you to Lindsey Stinnett. Lindsey is a master teacher, eighth-grade English teacher and the English/Language Arts Department chair at Vine Middle Magnet School. Previously, Lindsey served as an English teacher and instructional coach at West High School. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Furman University as well as master’s degrees in public administration and in theory and practice in teacher education from UT.
Lindsey is one of 14 fellows chosen for the 2017-18 Center for Leadership Academy based in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. During this full-time, intensive 15-month fellowship program, Lindsey will spend four days a week at a school with an experienced mentor principal and a fifth day in coursework and seminars with professors and expert practitioner partners learning the research and theory behind great school leadership. Next, all the fellows will lead an action research capstone project that integrates their learning across the many curricular areas of the academy, and complete an electronic portfolio documenting proficiency in school leadership. Upon successful completion of the program, Lindsey will be awarded a master’s or educational specialist degree and will be eligible to earn a license to be a school principal in Tennessee.
Congratulations Lindsey for being selected as one of the 2017-18 Center For Leadership Academy Fellows!
