The Klingenstein Center for Independent School Leadership Awards Fellowship to Head of School

(Official Press Release)

IleneReinfeld-HeadofSchoolIlene Reinfeld, Head of Los Encinos School, has been awarded a fully-funded fellowship to the Klingenstein Center for a fellowship for the 2012 Heads of Schools Program. She was selected from a talented pool of national and international applicants and will become part of a distinguished group of over 200 school heads who have participated in the program. This distinguished award, granted to just 20 heads of school annually, provides independent school leaders with an opportunity for focused professional enrichment, renewal and reflection.

On January 23, Ilene joined visiting heads from around the world on the Columbia University campus for intensive study and to examine educational issues and policies facing independent school educators. The Klingenstein Center attracts and selects educators who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishment or potential for excellence and equips them with the knowledge, skills and values necessary for informed and effective practice. Participants focused on philosophy, research, technology and governance. The 2012 cohort included heads from all areas of the United States in addition to participants from the Czech Republic, Canada, South Africa, Croatia, Latvia, Venezuela and France.

The Klingenstein Center is dedicated to improving the quality of independent school education by developing and strengthening leadership among teachers and administrators who work in independent schools in the United States and throughout the world. All fellowships and graduate programs focus on instructional leadership, collaboration and teamwork, a commitment to social justice and diversity, and reflective practice.

Drawing upon a record of success that spans more than thirty years and the full resources of Teachers College and the other graduate schools of Columbia University, the Klingenstein Center stands alone in its capacity to develop leaders for independent schools.

The LES Community congratulates Mrs. Reinfeld on completing her two-week fellowship!
