Learn The Art of Teaching

I have a lot of admiration for teachers; their ability to capture children's attention and keep order in a classroom is truly a form of art.

Many may have aspirations becoming a teacher, but the finances may not reach far enough. There is good news for those who would enjoy teaching science, technology, engineering, or math, because they may be eligible for one of the grants for teachers provided by the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships.

To complete one of those intensive master’s degree programs at one of seventeen participating universities across the mid-west, you are majored in and/or have a strong professional background in a STEM field and show a commitment to the program and its goals.

You also have to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, have a bachelor's degree or expect to get one by June 30, 2012 and have achieved a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.

You could receive a $30,000 stipend to cover the costs of the full-time pre-service Master's year and you can also expect that the coursework of this year is spent in a high need classroom under supervision of experienced teacher leaders.

The master's study year will equally be divided between coursework and demanding immersive "clinical" experiences in schools, observing, focusing and working in mainly high-poverty urban or rural schools, three to five days per week.

With no more then 19 other fellows on each campus, you will obtain a teacher certification by the end of summer 2013 in Indiana, Ohio, or Michigan and when you start a three-year commitment as salaried teachers working for school districts, you are assured of the assistance from veteran teachers throughout those three years.

A lot of the universities even offer more financial help to achieve your goal. No, it is not going to be easy, but no art is!
