A great teacher empowers students to change their world for the better.
Are you committed to becoming that teacher?
If you are, a Teaching Fellowship from the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) could change your world. KSTF knows that teaching is a complex, intellectually challenging profession requiring specialized learning, access to experts and resources, and deep practice. The Teaching Fellowship meets the needs of high school mathematics and science teachers from the onset of the credentialing process through the pivotal early years of their careers.
KSTF supports passionate, dedicated teachers to thrive in the profession, lead from the classroom and become change agents in education. The five-year fellowship is one of the most generous and comprehensive in the nation, providing tuition assistance, monthly stipends, cohesive and comprehensive professional development, and access to a close, collaborative community of like-minded colleagues.
“KSTF has been crucial to my growth as a teacher and a teacher leader.” Jason Gipson-Nahman, Physics Teacher, KSTF Alumnus
KSTF awards Teaching Fellowships in the three disciplinary areas of biology, mathematics and physical sciences to individuals who demonstrate exceptional content knowledge in the area they intend to teach, a commitment to teaching high school in U.S. schools, professional ability, and the potential for leadership.
If you are passionate about teaching high school math and science and dedicated to challenging and supporting all students, the KSTF Teaching Fellowship could help you succeed in ways you’ve never imagined.
“KSTF is helping me to push students to understand things more deeply, to become risk takers and to solve problems.”
Alexandra Fuentes, Biology Teacher, 2008 KSTF Biology Teaching Fellow
