Kenan Fellows names 2020-2021 teacher leaders

The Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership announced this week the 19 North Carolina public school educators who have been awarded 2020-2021 fellowships. This cohort of K-12 teachers serve in a dozen North Carolina counties and was selected from a highly-qualified applicant pool of 71 educators following a competitive application process. This summer, and in the coming year, they will partner with local experts in agriculture, scientific research, energy, high-tech manufacturing, and other STEM fields. As part of the award, Kenan Fellows receive a $5,000 stipend and participate in 80 hours of professional development that focuses on project-based instruction, digital learning, elevating teacher voice and the teaching profession, strengthening ties between the school and the local community, peer coaching and mentoring, and growing professional learning networks that extend beyond the school and local district. Meet the 2020-2021 Kenan Fellows.
