Meet Brett Herron, 2017-18 Leadership Academy Fellow

The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences would like to introduce you to Brett Herron.  Brett is currently a 4th grade math and science teacher at Roosevelt Elementary School, where he started as a kindergarten teacher in 2008. He received the 2014-2015 Elementary Teacher of the Year at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary, and has served on the Roosevelt Elementary School Leadership Team for 3 years. Brett holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications from East Tennessee State University, and a Master of Education in Elementary Education from Milligan College.

Brett is an addition to the original 14 (now 15) 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, Brett 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, Brett 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 Brett for being selected as one of the 2017-18 Center For Leadership Academy Fellows!
