The U.S. Department of Education is seeking outstanding teachers for the highly selective Teaching Ambassador Fellowship program. The one-year appointments begin in August. Applications are due no later than Jan. 29.
Fellows work to support the Department's mission. They gain significant knowledge about the Department's information and resources, share this information with other educators across the country, and contribute their classroom expertise to the national dialogue. Teaching Ambassador Fellows are outstanding teachers, with a record of leadership, strong communication skills, and insights into educational policy based in classroom expertise.
There are two types of Fellows: one that allows the teacher to continue teaching and the other that is based in Washington, D.C.
