Meet the Fellows

Highlander Institute has assembled a dream team of Fuse RI Fellows, educators and administrators from schools around Rhode Island. Over the course of the 2 year Fellowship, each Fellow partners with another district (separate from the one s/he works in) and collaborates with that partner district to assess readiness, coach early adopters, and help disseminate best blended learning practices based on each district’s specific needs. 

Fuse RI Fellows hail from all corners of the state and are eager to collaborate, connect, and learn with district partners during their fellowship and beyond.
