Aspiring Leader Shadows Top School Administrators in North Carolina

Publication Date: 7/2/2010

Teacher and Rhodes alumna Kelsey Knipshild is one of 12 Aspiring Leaders fellows spending the summer shadowing top school administrators of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) in North Carolina.

CMS started the Aspiring Leaders program this year with a major grant from Wachovia/Wells Fargo. The program is for teachers with one or two years of classroom experience. They are recommended by principals and must complete a series of interviews. Participants receive management training and will work in their home schools in the coming year to develop new programs for students.

A 2008 Rhodes graduate with a degree in psychology, Knipshild has taught second grade for two years at Ashley Park Elementary in Charlotte and last summer taught in Tanzania.

Knipshild currently is pursuing a master’s degree at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
