Detroit News, Oakland Press announce 2012 Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellows
A fighter pilot, a pastor, a biologist and a sea kayak instructor are among the latest round of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellows being sent to teach in high-need urban and rural schools across Michigan, including Detroit. Each member of the 2012 class of fellows, announced in Lansing on Wednesday, is making a three-year commitment to teach in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math — known as STEM — across Michigan. Each of the 74 recipients will receive $30,000 to complete a specially designed master's degree program preparing them to teach in Michigan's high-need urban and rural secondary schools. The fellows will attend Wayne State University, Eastern Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Western Michigan University. The universities partner with local school districts where fellows learn to teach in real classrooms from the beginning of their master's work, foundation officials said.
