Education Leadership Institute Jefferson Parish
Congratulations to all graduates of ELI Jefferson Parish!
"Being a teacher for Jefferson Parish Public Schools, ELI gave me a broader perspective of educational leadership/advocacy and how, as leaders and policy makers, we have a responsibility to improve education for all our students."
-Clarence Osteen, 2017 ELI Graduate
