WW Teaching Fellows Committed to Making a Difference
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows come from many different backgrounds but are united by a single goal: to teach science, technology, engineering, and math (the STEM fields) in some of the nation’s highest-need schools. The WW Teaching Fellows are committed to the school communities in which they teach and to making a difference in the lives of their students. See the impact their work has in the video above.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented individuals to teaching in high-need secondary schools in Georgia and Pennsylvania. The Fellowship has also prepared over a thousand teachers in Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, and Ohio. Fellows are recent college graduates, midcareer professionals, and retirees who have majored in, or have extensively studied, one or more of the STEM fields.
The Fellowship also works to change the way top teachers are prepared, partnering with colleges and universities that have agreed to provide Fellows with innovative, year-long classroom experiences, rigorous academic work, and ongoing mentoring.
WW Teaching Fellows receive a stipend as they work towards their master’s degree at a partner university. Fellows spend a year teaching in a classroom with an experienced teacher in what is called a clinical placement. As graduates and as part of their commitment to ensuring the success of students in high-need secondary schools, Fellows teach for at least three years in an urban or rural school district.
