MARTIN — The University of Tennessee at Martin’s WestStar Leadership Program has selected Tracy Connell, a teacher at Huntingdon High School, and Lindsey Parham, a teacher at McKenzie High School, as two of 12 area educators to participate in the new WestTeach program.
WestTeach is a development program for West Tennessee teachers in grades K-12 who aspire to be leaders in their schools. UT Martin’s WestStar Leadership Program founded the workshop series as an extension of its mission to equip West Tennessee’s community leaders with the skills and tools needed to support the region.
Over the course of three months, program participants will attend five sessions on topics such as West Tennessee agriculture, entrepreneurship and economic development. WestTeach offers an opportunity to build connections with industry and community leaders as well as develop skills for leadership both inside and outside of the classroom.
The WestTeach class of 2018 is the first group to complete the program. The WestTeach Leadership Steering Committee selected participants based on leadership potential and nominations from area principals and school superintendents.
