Good thing there is a program that helps and encourages those who want to become teacher just like my husband. Woodrow Wilson Teaching fellowship encourages and helps these prospective teachers to work in the classroom where they are needed. The program also prepares, mentors future teachers through schooling on top of offering a $30,000 stipend for those who want to change their career just like my husband and also those who are recent graduates of Math, Technology, Engineering and Science fields. If you are interested, there are 14 participating universities you can choose from in order to complete the Master's program. To qualify, you must have completed an undergraduate in one of the related fields mentioned here by June of 2011 and have at least 3.0 GPA with great commitment to the program and its goal.
After you enrolled in the program, you need to complete teacher field-based master's degree in teacher education. You also need to teach in a high-need school for three years. Part of the program is you will also be provided with support as well as mentors in the classroom as you teach. Whichever program you enrolled in is where you would complete your Master's degree and be teaching the minimum of 3 years following your graduation. The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships seeks to recruit, prepare and retain effective teachers for the students and schools who need them most.
