Education Policy Fellowship for Tennessee Teachers
Hope Street Group, a national nonpartisan nonprofit that connects teachers with policymakers, is partnering with the department to launch the Tennessee State Teacher Fellowship (see https://news.tn.gov/taxonomy/term/26 ). The fellowship provides teachers with opportunities to meet leading policymakers and present them with solutions for elevating the teaching profession. Teacher Fellows stay in their classrooms full time, work with Hope Street Group 10-15 hours each month, and receive a $3,500 stipend for the 12-month fellowship. Teachers with interest and experience in teacher leadership and education policy are strongly encouraged to apply. The application, due March 20, is
