M.Ed. Fellowships


The Teacher Education Fellowship links graduate study with a yearlong clinical residency in a PreK-12 partner school.   

As a teacher fellow, you’ll work in a school district for a full academic year, gaining unparalleled and invaluable field experience. You’ll engage in a range of classroom-based activities, including small group instruction, co-teaching, and ultimately, independent classroom instruction.
