Georgia welcomes first class of WW Teaching Fellows
Earlier this summer, Woodrow Wilson announced the inaugural class of WW Georgia Teaching Fellows (link to press release) with the help of GA Gov. Nathan Deal at the State House in Atlanta. Fellows in this first year’s class will attend Columbus State, Kennesaw State, and Piedmont College, with Georgia State and Mercer University taking Fellows in the 2016 class. Of the 2015 WW GA Teaching Fellows, 100% majored in a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) discipline, and nine of the Fellows hold advanced degrees. The class includes two veterans of the U.S. armed forces, a public health research chemist from the CDC, and a veterinarian.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship (link to fellowship page) aims to attract the very best candidates to teaching, put strong teachers into high-need schools, cut teacher attrition and retain top teachers, and transform university-based teacher education.
