What is Trellis Education?

Meet our 2016-22 teacher scholars!

Our first cohort of teacher scholars will impact more than 3,000 California students.

Applications for the 2017-23 Trellis Teacher Scholar cohort coming in early 2017. First phase of materials will be due April 2017.
“You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be. And one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid…. You refuse to do it because you want to live longer…. You’re afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you’re afraid that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb your house; so you refuse to take the stand.

Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
“If we were thinking about [teacher education] the way we think about medicine, as they did back in 1910 when the Flexner Report came out,…we would say, ‘Let’s get the smartest people we can. Let’s get them the best, most comprehensive, intensive training we can possibly organize for them, and then let’s keep them in the profession.’ That would be respectful to children, and to the recruits, and to the education system.”

- Linda Darling-Hammond

 

We work for CHANGE...

The Trellis Mentor Fellows considered some of the stats describing the current state of STEM education and careers and imagined what the stats might be in ten years due to their work in their districts, schools, and communities and Trellis' work across the state.

WHAT STAT WILL DESCRIBE STEM TEACHING, LEARNING, AND INNOVATION IN TEN YEARS?
