The Value of the Kenan Fellows Program
June 23rd, 2016 by Tiffany Parks
What do you hope to gain from your fellowship experience?
Being a Kenan Fellow offers an opportunity to network and brainstorm with other teachers from other contents. During the week at NCCAT I have meet people from all over the state from various school settings. With this differentiated group it has given me such a boost of encouragement to keep growing as a professional. These people have sparked creativity and reinforced why I teach.
This opportunity improves various skills. During our professional development we have learned about the importance of branding, creating a project-based learning lessons, tweeting, blogging, apps for education, links to various resources, cultural differences, classroom management and so much more. The Kenan Fellows is an amazing platform to actively reflect on your practices and share information with the world. This opportunity can impact not just me, but other people who care about education.
