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.

TFI helps teachers have the most valuable kind of resources - access to other professionals and leading speakers. TFI treats teachers with the respect of a professional and increases teachers' awareness of important topics.

As a classroom teacher for 4 years and now an instructional technology coach and facilitator at the High School level , I can honestly say that TFI is doing tremendous work in Charlotte, NC. They are bringing together highly qualified and highly competent teachers from both the public school system and the private system and allowing these teachers to share best practices with one another and providing professional development for educators unlike any other that I have seen in the district. It is truly a unique program and one that could and should be replicated across the country. Educators need an organization like this to advocate on behalf of educators and an organization like this that provides the sort of professional development and support that is not available through a school or through a district. I am proud of my affiliation with TFI and am thankful to have the relationships I do with other educators in the program.

Teaching Fellows Institute was an amazing opportunity. I was able to network with teachers at other schools, not just public but also private schools. I am able to attend amazing professional developments that are not available through my county. I am also able to keep up with the networks that I made in TFI through social media.
