In Hostile Climate for Teachers, 2011 Knowles Science Teaching Foundation Fellows Commit to Careers in Science Education
KSTF Awards Andrea Charbonnel of Paramus and Amanda Rice of Scotch Plains Five-Year Fellowships Valued Up to $150,000
At a time when education news headlines lead with layoffs and budget cuts, the 2011 Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) Fellows from New Jersey are choosing to impact the future through teaching. Despite the increasingly negative rhetoric about teachers and education in the U.S., these high-achieving recent grads are bringing their passion for science education into the nation’s high schools. In a highly competitive selection process, KSTF, an advocate for new teachers and the teaching profession, has awarded each of these beginning teachers a fellowship in physical science valued at up to $150,000 over five years.
