How can we grow and retain top teachers?
Two strong strategies: Provide powerful learning experiences and recognize outstanding teachers. Join us May 11 to learn about two exciting programs in the field.
Jeff Rozelle will talk about a teacher fellowship provided by the Knowles Science Teacher Foundation
The Knowles Science Teacher Foundation (KSTF) supports new math and science teachers. The foundation offers professional development, resources and support to teachers. All to improve STEM education across the country.
The KSTF Fellowship Program helps new math and science teachers explore, test and refine new ways to connect with students and make an impact. Over a five year program, first and second year teachers work with experienced educators and receive funding for classroom materials and more.
We'll also hear from two educators awarded the Allen Distinguished Educator awards. The Allen Distinguished Educators Program spotlights K-12 teachers who have created innovative programs in computer science, engineering, and/or entrepreneurship. Awardees receive $25,000 and those seeking to replicate the innovative programs can also apply for support.
We'll also hear from two teachers who've received the Allen Distinguished Educator award: Dawn DuPriest and Tracey Winey
Jeff Rozelle, Fellow Program Director, provides management oversight for KSTF's signature fellowship program. He began his career in the Cincinnati Public School District, where he taught science for nine years.
Dawn Dupriest and Tracey Winey, Allen Distinguished Educator Awardees, are engineering teachers at Preston Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado.
