Over the summer, the Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellowship at Eastern Michigan University welcomed its third cohort of fellows. The fellows are now taking EMU coursework, and have also begun their internships in the Detroit Public Schools and in the new Ypsilanti Community Schools.

All fellows will begin their science or mathematics teaching careers in high-need school districts by fall 2014 and will continue to receive long term mentoring from EMU faculty for at least three more years.

The W. K. Kellogg Foundation recently approved a fourth cohort of teachers and applications will remain open until January 31, 2014.

With the departure of former Woodrow Wilson assistant director Beth Kubitskey, who became interim associate dean of the College of Education at EMU, the Fellowship welcomes Michael McVey as the new associate director. McVey brings a rich background in educational technology, secondary methods and special education to the program and will lead the long-term mentoring efforts for the program.
