Burroughs Wellcome Fund: Providing Perspectives for Pre-Service Teachers

Thanks to support from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, the Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership is partnering with N.C. Teaching Fellows programs to develop workshops for pre-service STEM and Special Education teachers. The elected Kenan Fellows will use their expertise to create professional development with a focus on highly effective teaching strategies, classroom culture, and inclusion and belonging strategies. N.C. A&T University, Fayetteville State University, and N.C. State University’s Teaching Fellows programs will be hosting the selected Fellows locally, and one of the three weeks of the summer internship will include an immersion with our partners at the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and the Dudley Flood Center.  Graduates of any N.C. Teaching Fellows program who live and work in the communities surrounding those universities are encouraged to apply.
