I am a teacher in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools who was selected as a 2016 fellow. I was very impressed with the program I attended in August 2016. Teaching Fellows Institute is unique in that it provides networking opportunities for teachers from public and private schools in my county. The professional development offerings are outstanding. This organization is a tremendous supporter of teachers.

It is because of TFI that I am still in education and now leading a turn around school. I became a fellow 11 years ago, right at the time I had decided it would be my last year in education. The experience changed my path, and now I am leading adults and children. TFI is doing great things for our unsung Heroes, our educators.

I was selected to attend the Teaching Fellows Institute several summers ago, and it was an amazing experience! Not only did I get to hear some amazing presentations and learn from the best, but I also enjoyed collaborating with other teachers from the city. It was a chance to be spoiled with excellent food, a beautiful atmosphere, and a very well designed program. I would recommend it to anyone!
