Teaching Ambassador Fellowship

Posted by U.S. Department of Education on November 23, 2015

The US Department of Education (i.e. ED) has opened applications for the next cohort of teacher (and principal) Fellows. If you know of someone who might be interested in this terrific experience, please share this information with them:

The application window for the 2016-2017 Teaching Ambassador Fellowship is now open! Applications are due by no later than December 14, 2015 at 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time.

With over three million public school teachers, America is fortunate to have many committed and highly effective instructors in our schools. These teachers understand better than anyone the rewards of public education, as well as the need for some dramatic improvements.

Teachers perform many vital leadership activities in classrooms and schools, but too often lack opportunities to contribute their knowledge to the development of education policy on a broader scale. The U.S. Department of Education designed the Teaching Ambassador Fellowship to enable outstanding teachers to bring their classroom expertise to and expand their knowledge of the national dialogue about education. In turn, Teaching Ambassador Fellows facilitate the learning and input of other educators and community members.
