Our second cohort of Trellis Mentor Fellows has been selected!

Stay tuned for more info...

Our second cohort of Trellis Mentor Fellows will make a four-year commitment to improving the quality of early clinical experiences for pre-service math and science teachers via longer, more effective, substantial, and symbiotic relationships with exceptional mentors. In return, they will receive training and on-going support for the effective mentoring of pre-service and early-service teachers, myriad professional learning opportunities that allow them to push their practice forward and develop their effectiveness as a teacher leader, increased support from your district to do this important work, and an annual stipend of at least $5,000. Most importantly, they will join a cross-district professional learning community changing the face of STEM teacher education from the inside.
