A team of three stellar Cristo Rey Jesuit teachers were recently accepted into the prestigious Hollyhock Fellowship, a selective teacher-development program at the Stanford University Graduate School of Education. Aaron Hess, Jennifer Jorgensen, and Conor Squier will begin the fully funded, two-year fellowship this summer with an intensive two-week seminar on the Stanford campus.
The Hollyhock Fellowship, which prioritizes educators from across the country who support under-resourced communities, provides each teacher with a coach who is an expert in content-specific pedagogy. In addition, the team will undertake a self-identified, long-term project that will enhance their school’s ability to deliver on its mission.
In addition, math teacher Blake Suhar, who is approaching the end of his two-year Hollyhock Fellowship, was also accepted into Hollyhock’s Leading Fellows Program, which is reserved for high-performing graduates of the Fellowship who are interested in teacher leadership.
Congratulations to all four of these impressive teachers for embodying lifelong learning for our students and developing their gifts to the greater benefit of Cristo Rey Jesuit. If you are–or know of–a talented educator animated by our mission and inspired to grow towards excellence, please check out–or share–our position openings for the coming school year.
