If you have students, friends, or colleagues who want to put their math or
science knowledge to work for young people who need them most, the Woodrow
Wilson Teaching Fellowship Program offers an unparalleled opportunity.

For top applicants, this prestigious fellowship offers a $30,000 stipend
toward completion of a master's degree program at a Woodrow Wilson partner
institution in Georgia, Indiana, or New Jersey. Fellows undergo a year-long
clinical experience in a high-need school, along with rigorous subject
matter courses, then commit to teach for three years in urban or rural
secondary schools, with mentoring throughout the entire process.

The most successful Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows come to us through a
recommendation from a trusted source--a professor or colleague like you.
Please pass this email to your students or recent grads you think would be
strong applicants and encourage them to apply.  The 2015 Woodrow Wilson
Teaching Fellowship program application deadline is *January 31, 2015*.

Thanks for giving this opportunity some thought.  We look forward to
hearing from any candidates you can refer to us.

All best,
Jose Ochoa
Director, Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships

                            *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.

*-Dr. Delphina (Del) Hopkins-Gillispie, Director of Lincensure at
Valparaiso University*

My co- teaching experience at Wirt/Emerson Visual Performing Arts and High
Ability Academy has been a priceless experience in my preparation for
having my own classroom next year.  My cooperating teacher has helped me
learn about how the classroom functions, gives me advice on any situations
with students, and has helped me adjust to a new school. This experience
has truly helped me learn about the classroom environment and has been the
part of the program that has taught me the most about what teaching in a
high-needs school is really like.

*-Martin Barker, 2014 Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellow at Valparaiso

are proud that education leaders recognize the impact of the program as an
initial teaching certification program for STEM students. *

Hear Principal Dan Wilson share how he's seen Woodrow Wilson Teaching
Fellows be more prepared than other first-year teachers.
-Dan Wilson, Principal, Lynhurst 7th & 8th Grade Center, Indianapolis,
Indiana          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. *Start your online application
