Sponsored Post: The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Woodrow Wilson. All opinions are 100% mine.

Before becoming a stay at home and the mom blogger you all know and love, I was an elementary school teacher.  Teaching is a worth while career and I would recommend it to anyone who has a love for children. It's tough, emotionally draining, yet fulfilling at the same time! America is in need of qualified teachers.

To ensure that America is ready for the 21st century, schools are being challenged to raise the bar – educate students to higher standards and graduate more students ready for college and a career.  Research shows that the most effective way to promote high-levels of student success is to have excellent educators  in every classroom.  However, the need for teachers continues to grow, particularly in high-need disciplines.  By 2015, it is projected that 280,000 new math and science teachers will be needed in America’s public school classrooms (Business-Higher Education Forum)

Nowadays more and more people are realizing what a great path teaching is. College graduates and career changers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, or math) are welcomed to apply for The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship at The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship is devoted to recruiting, preparing, and retaining effective teachers for the students who need them the most.

People awarded with the fellowship will receive a $30,000 stipend to complete an intensive master’s degree program at one of fourteen participating universities.

Candidates must
- Have completed an undergraduate degree in a STEM field by June 2011.
- Have graduated with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
- Demonstrate a commitment to the program and its goals.

Fellows will:
- Complete a field-based master’s degree in teacher education.
- Commit to teach for at least three years in a high-need school.
- Receive intensive support and mentoring in the classroom.

Once selected, Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellows become lifelong members of a national network of intellectual leaders. Today’s 20,000 Woodrow Wilson Fellows include 13 Nobel Laureates, 35 MacArthur “genius grant" recipients, 14 Pulitzer Prize winners, two Fields Medalists in mathematics, and many other noted scholars and leaders. In addition, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation can help Fellows find out about requirements for National Board Certification—for which Fellows will be eligible after three years of teaching!
