New teachers face tremendous challenges when they step foot into Oklahoma classrooms for the first…
Meet TLI: Nina Fitzerman-Blue
What do you do at TLI?
Work with school leaders! As the Director of Leadership Programs, I run our School Leader Cohort — a year-long fellowship that includes summer training, weekly one-on-one coaching, and opportunities for school leaders to collaborate, share with, and learn from each other.
How did your career path lead you to TLI?
I know from experience that leadership can be lonely. I’ve been a teacher, a teacher coach, a school leader, and a curriculum writer. After this time in schools craving more individual support than I ever actually got, I knew I wanted to provide support to school leaders. TLI allowed me to do exactly what I wanted to do — what I had actually wanted for myself — to give leaders the consistent, individual support they deserve.
What is your favorite thing about doing this work?
Getting to spend time with the hardest-working, most kind-hearted, smart, caring, inspiring leaders in Tulsa!
What do you hope for students in Oklahoma?
For our Oklahoma students, I hope for rigorous content and excellent instruction. I want our students to be challenged, inspired, and met with the high expectations they deserve.
What else should we know about you?
I am a Tulsa native, and happy to be back after more than a decade in the Northeast. Outside of TLI, I am hanging out with my family — Dan, my husband, and our two kids, Lucy and Nino.
