In order to transition schools and districts to blended and personalized learning, we must develop a talented pipeline of educators who understand these approaches and can support leaders with this shift. The Fuse RI Fellowship is currently training 60 educators to be Rhode Island’s next generation of blended and personalized learning coaches, consultants, and leaders.
In this webinar, three leaders from the Fellowship will present best practices for defining a district’s blended learning vision, identifying priority practices, and coaching early-adopter teachers. Maeve Murray, Julie Mayhew, and Rebecca Willner, will share asynchronous resources that you can use to train your own coaches and collaboratively design your own rollout plans.
Maeve, Julie, and Rebecca will field questions after their presentation. This live, interactive event is designed for K-12 educators, coaches, library media specialists, building leaders, and district administrators. Join us to learn how to build blended learning teacher leaders in your district.
About the Presenters
Maeve Murray is the project manager overseeing the Fuse RI Fellowship at Highlander Institute. Before starting at the Institute, Maeve was a founding high school math and special education teacher at Village Green Virtual Charter School in downtown Providence, RI. She has also previously worked as an education policy fellow for the Rhode Island Governor’s Office, and taught English as a second language and American literature through the Fulbright Bulgaria program. She lives in Providence, RI.
Julie Mayhew is the director of curriculum, instruction, and assessment for Burrillville Public Schools, RI. Initially trained as an elementary educator, Mrs. Mayhew earned her B.A. from Stonehill College. She was inspired to pursue reading instruction as a specialty after an internship in London, England, and earned a master’s degree in reading, language, and learning disabilities from Harvard University soon afterward. Mrs. Mayhew taught for more than 20 years before moving into administration. Her experience includes both private and public schools, as well as a rehabilitation hospital, and she has had the pleasure of teaching students from kindergarten through high school. In 2010, Mrs. Mayhew began her journey toward administration, training to be an instructional leader through the Principal Residency Network, and then becoming Principal of the Austin T. Levy elementary school in Burrillville before taking on her district-level role.
Rebecca is an ELA teacher at Beacon Charter High School for the Arts in Woonsocket, RI. She originally came to Rhode Island to study Greek and Latin at Brown University, but she inevitably turned towards teaching, completing the MAT program also at Brown. She believes in equality, access, and choice for all students, and she can’t wait to see all the amazing pockets of blended learning happening throughout Rhode Island.
