The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) launched the Tennessee Educator Fellowship in 2014 to empower classroom teachers to weigh in on policy conversations at the state and local levels. During a one-year term, the Tennessee Educator Fellows learn about, reflect upon, and inform the policies, practices, and systems that affect student achievement and educator effectiveness. Successful past fellows have strategically engaged their colleagues, community members, and policymakers to advocate for improving educational outcomes for all students.
SCORE will select approximately 40 K-12 classroom teachers, librarians, interventionists, and school counselors who are interested in elevating their voices in support of teachers and students. Applicants must have at least three years teaching experience in a Tennessee public school by May 2018. Each fellow will receive a $5,000 stipend for this work while continuing in the classroom during the 2018-19 school year. You can learn more about the fellowship in this blog post, which highlights the work of current and former fellows.
More details and the application link are available here. Applications are due by 11:59 pm CST on Friday, March 2, 2018.
