The Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship Program seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with backgrounds in the STEM fields – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – into teaching in high-need Ohio high schools.
I needed another opportunity in life, and the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship presented one to me. My goal is to not only be an effective mathematics teacher, but also a positive role model for my students. – Roosevelt Merritts
I want to teach because I’ve always wanted to help kids see what they cannot see for themselves—whether it be in the classroom or the real world. Too many times students turn away from science because they cannot see the relevance it plays in their lives, but I believe with the help of the fellowship and my fellow mentors and fellows, I can change their minds. – Emily Kill
I started coaching sports right after graduating high school, and I immediately fell in love with teaching sports. As much as I enjoyed engineering, I couldn’t resist the call of teaching. I found out about the Woodrow Wilson program and couldn’t apply fast enough. The Fellowship was the perfect way for me to combine my love of sports, science and engineering with my desire inspire tomorrows scientists and engineers. – Brian Laiveling
Recognized as a state leader in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education through the new Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship Program, UC’s College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH) prepares teachers to make a difference in their communities and around the world.
With the support of the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, UC looks to transform fellows into recognized leaders in the teaching profession.
Guided by faculty mentors from CECH, McMicken College of Arts & Sciences, and College of Engineering and Applied Science, fellows will complete a 15-month intensive, field-based master’s degree in teacher education at UC, with licensure.
