Teacher Induction Program Gets New Leader

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.
