View this email in your browser
Dear Colleague:

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.  For more information, please visit  You can also download a poster for the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship.

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 University

We 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.
