The Teaching Fellowship Program provides a unique and dynamic opportunity for aspiring teachers to develop and hone their skills under the mentorship of experienced master teachers. Teaching Fellows participate as a cohort in a professional learning community (PLC).
In this PLC, the goals are to enrich and deepen their craft of teaching and to delve deeper into specific learning and teaching approaches including: Universal Design for Learning, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work, and Responsive Classroom. As Teaching Fellows gain more expertise, skill, and understanding of their areas of interest, their responsibilities and experiences expand within the classroom and the school.
