Become a teacher thru The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Woodrow Wilson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Working in a private high school as an assistant Librarian and a part-time teacher is a huge privilege that molded me into a better person  as well as appreciate teaching even more. It was such a pleasure to be a part of a huge family and  a sister to the rest of the faculty and staff who are mostly holders of Masters in Education (lower ranked) and Doctors in Education (administrators).

Meanwhile, I had a voice chat with an ex-colleague last week. She is here in America because of a teaching job in a public school. In two years of her stay, she has adjusted not fully to the culture, thus, wants to go to school again to keep her from homesickness. She earned her Masters in Education in General Science back home and wants to further her education in the field of Science and Mathematics.

In relation to teaching, I came across a website, www.wwteachingfellowship.org today. I learned a few regarding it's mission  to recruit, prepare and retain effective teachers for the students and schools who need them most.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship provides recent college graduates and career changers in STEM fields --science, technology, engineering, or math-- with a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master’s degree program at one of fourteen participating universities.

Competitive candidates should :
- Have completed an undergraduate degree in a STEM field by June 2011.
- Have graduated with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
- Demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals.

Fellows will:
- Complete a field-based master’s degree in teacher education.
- Commit to teach for at least three years in a high-need school.
- Receive intensive support and mentoring in the classroom.

It is not too late to become a school teacher you want to be. Check out the website to learn more about The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship. Application is accepted til September 1 only.
