Fellows members

Here is what Fellows have to say

“I have benefitted from the opportunity to collaborate with other early learning professionals and with teachers from the school districts.”

-Early Learning Fellow

"The information was very timely to what my current needs are. I will be able to implement strategies from one of the articles directly into what I need to do for my teacher evaluation and the work I am doing around effective teaching practices this year. I enjoyed the thoughtful conversations and the articles."

-ELA Fellow

“I will continue to share engagement strategies with my Math Department; sharing a variety of student routines and websites to help give students more voice in class."
