The Teacher Fellowship Program currently supports a cohort of 8 laity and monastic teachers, all of whom are active teachers in different monastic settings. Launched in 2019, the fellowship supports these teachers to become leading agents of educational improvement. Through a small stipend, master classes with acclaimed school teachers from the USA, onsite mentorship visits, and a peer community of their fellows, each fellow can re-imagine the possibilities of teaching and learning in their classroom. During their fellowship year, the fellows will film each other practicing new teaching strategies, write about successful lessons, share dilemmas, and mentor one-another.
