Rochester Community Schools is pleased to announce that Laura Walsh, assistant director of special education for elementary, has been selected to join the Saginaw Valley State University Gerstacker Fellowship Program in 2018. As part of the initiative, Walsh, along with 12 other teachers, principals, and program administrators from across Michigan, will receive concentrated leadership training over a one-year period. The experience concludes with a capstone international trip to China in June. "As a Gerstacker Fellow, Laura will continue to develop a broad base of experience that would exponentially expand her already impressive ability to creatively solve problems and implement meaningful change," said Superintendent Robert Shaner, Ph.D., who was inducted into the program in 2010.
