The Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies would like to introduce you to Jamie Bowman. Jamie is an assistant principal at Horace Maynard Middle School in Union County. She previously served as an instructional facilitator and sixth grade English/Language Arts teacher at Maynard Middle. Jamie has a bachelor’s degree in political science from UT as well as a Master of Education degree in administration and supervision from Lincoln Memorial University.
Jamie is one of 15 fellows chosen for the 2017-18 Center for Educational Leadership’s Leadership Academy based in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. During this full-time, intensive 15-month fellowship program, Jamie 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, Jamie 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 Jamie for being selected as one of the 2017-18 Leadership Academy Fellows!
