Lisa Vahey (pictured), who headed the Chicago New Teacher Center for the past three years, is moving on.
Cindy Brunswick, another longtime CNTC staffer, will take the lead. Read below for the official announcement.
As you know, for the past 3 years Lisa Vahey has worked with
Cindy Brunswick and the CNTC team to grow our work in Chicago. They
have done outstanding work, and our presence and impact in Chicago
Public Schools have grown and expanded impressively. In spite of the
transition of Arne Duncan to Washington and the associated change in
leadership at CPS, the work in Chicago continues to be strongly
supported by Barbara Eason-Watkins and Ron Huberman, the new CEO. Lisa
has done amazing work engaging key leaders in both the community and in
CPS. Lisa will be transitioning out of her role at CNTC, and she is
looking forward to spending the summer with her children. I am fully
supportive of Lisa's decision as I know how difficult it is to balance
work and family. We are confident that our strong Chicago team led by
Cindy will continue with the outstanding work that has allowed CNTC to
effectively support induction program and policy improvements in
Chicago and across the state of Illinois.
Please join me in thanking
Lisa for her invaluable contributions over the past 3 years, and wish
her a great summer with Ellie and David.
