Princeton University's Program in Teacher Preparation is once again partnering with Math for America (MfA), along with Montclair State University and Rowan University, in offering the NJ STEM Innovation Fellowship; a teacher leader program for New Jersey elementary math teachers and coaches. The 2021-2022 cohort is comprised of outstanding elementary math teachers and coaches and who meet outside of school hours to learn about innovative STEM teaching practices. Sessions focus on problems of practice, examining student work, videos of instruction, and reflecting on pedagogy.
Innovation fellowships at-a-glance include:
- One-year, renewable fellowships for experienced, accomplished elementary math teachers and coaches
- Focus on in-person and remote teaching innovations shown to improve student learning
- Summer institute for all fellows to introduce the teaching innovations and establish the year’s focus
- Monthly collaboration with other fellows at a leading university in one of three geographic regions – North, Central, and South Jersey
- $5,000 stipend for each fellow
