Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellow


Dear Colleague,

The November 14th application deadline for the 2015 Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships is just ahead. Some of your students could be the perfect fit for this pioneering program that prepares outstanding teachers for the schools that need them most. Please pass this email to your students or recent grads you think would be strong applicants. Thank you. We hope to hear from your students.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, now offered in Georgia, Indiana and New Jersey, recruits current seniors, recent grads, and alumni with backgrounds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to teach in high-need schools.

As a WW Teaching Fellow, you will have extraordinary opportunities: innovative, world-class teacher preparation, a full school year of experience in real-world classrooms, and ongoing mentoring support.  In addition, Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend to complete a master’s degree program. It’s not too late to apply for our November 14th deadline, you can start your online application here. Our final deadline for 2015 will be January 31, 2015 – but it’s best to apply early!

Curious about the advantages of our clinically-based program?

Woodrow Wilson Fellows are immersed into the role of teaching early in the program.  Fellows begin co-teaching in a high-need school from day one of the fall semester to the end of the academic year.  A licensed teacher and Woodrow Wilson fellow work collaboratively sharing responsibilities for co-planning, designing curriculum, formal and informal assessments, and teaching which benefits students in the STEM classroom.  I believe communication and collaboration are the key elements leading to the success of the co-teaching model where both co-teacher and fellow work as partners in the classroom.  I have seen our fellows and their co-teachers share the same work ethics, have pedagogical skills/skill sets that complement each other. The co-teaching experience for our fellows has worked extremely well.
