Applications are due February 28, 2014
All teachers of science in grades K-12 who have taught science for at least three years* and been employed by their current district for at least two years are invited to apply(only teachers from Clifton, Kearny, Montclair, Orange and Paramus districts are eligible); teachers must hold a valid license to teach a science subject; this can be an elementary license at the elementary level. Teachers should be able to describe past professional leadership experiences and must be able to demonstrate how they have been successful in the classroom. Teachers also must have the support of their school administrator to apply due to the extra commitments you will have during the school year. Furthermore, teachers who become Fellows are committing to remain in the classroom for the entire term of their Fellowship. Please note that Wipro SEF is an intensive program that will require an average of 125 hours of your time each year, and applicants should carefully consider their other teaching and professional obligations before applying.
