Black Teacher Project Fellows Program

Are you a Black teacher in the Bay Area who is four to eight years into your career? The Black Teacher Project (BTP) invites you to apply for the inaugural round of fellows for the 2017 - 2018 school year. This three-year program is an opportunity for structured support to build your leadership capacity and improve your student outcomes. Our teacher-leader fellows will engage in ongoing classroom-based inquiry that aligns activities in the fellows program with your professional advancement (clearing your credential, national board certification requirements, etc.). BTP fellows will also earn stipends.

Fellows will have access to a comprehensive menu of services and support including instructional coaching, professional development, mentorship, and leadership development conferences that position teachers to attain their educational goals as leaders in their field. As an inaugural fellow, the fellowship will be tailored to your specific needs as a teacher leader and your experience will lay the foundation for fellows to come. By signing on to be a fellow, you join an all-Black professional learning community of mid-career teachers.

BTP fellows will commit to:
• engaging in leadership & inquiry for three years
• classroom observation
• attending the Black Teacher Leadership & Sustainability Institute in Oakland (June 15 to 17, 2017)
• two meetings a month
• two Saturday meetings a semester

This form should take 15 to 30 minutes to fill out.

The deadline for this application is June 2, 2017.
