Opportunity to Develop and Implement National Education Policy
Founded on the principles of partnership, collaboration, and cooperation between the federal government and school-based educators, the United States Department of Education designed the School Ambassador Fellowship program to enable outstanding teachers, administrators, and other school leaders, such as school counselors, psychologists, social workers, and librarians, to bring their school and classroom expertise to the Education Department and expand their knowledge of the national dialogue about education.
The School Ambassador Fellowship program has two tracks: a Full-timeFellowship, in which teachers, administrators, and other school staff members are based in residence at the Department’s headquarters in Washington, DC; and a Part-timeFellowship, which enables educators to collaborate with the Department while maintaining their regular school responsibilities in their home communities.
Applications for the 2022–23 cohort of the School Ambassador Fellowship are open through 11:59 p.m. (ET) on January 14, 2022.
Each month we publish blogs and newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in December.
