May 5, 2021 Teaching Policy Fellowship Opportunity Are you a teacher in Pennsylvania who is interested in learning more about education policy? Sign up for the Teach Plus Teaching Policy Fellowship. About In summer 2021, Teach Plus will launch a Teaching Policy Fellowship in Pennsylvania. This highly selective leadership opportunity is for 30 outstanding teachers looking to deepen their knowledge of education policy and amplify the voices of teacher leaders in Pennsylvania. Policy fellows, who will receive a $1,500 stipend for their commitment, will expand their influence without leaving the classroom and elevate teacher voice on important student equity issues. Early childhood educators are particularly encouraged to apply! Fellows will attend two in-person training sessions (dependent on COVID-19 restrictions), monthly virtual meetings, and smaller, issues-focused working groups. Qualifications Teach Plus seeks a cohort of teachers who reflect the cultural, linguistic, and geographic diversity of our state. Applicants must: Be a current teacher of record (PK-12) in a PA public or charter school or early childhood education setting with at least two full years of teaching experience by June 2021. Have a track record of success teaching students in Pennsylvania. Be ready to dedicate time and energy to learning about policy and advocating on behalf of changes that impact your students — while continuing to teach full time. Have a passion for sharing the diverse perspectives and experiences of students and teachers with policy makers. Apply To learn more about the fellowship or to apply, visit the Teach Plus website. Educators can also be nominated for the opportunity. Teach Plus will host an information session about the fellowship on May 10, 2021 at 5 p.m. Register. Fellowship applications are due May 17, 2021.
