Meet the 2011 Fellows and Faculty

 

Teach With Africa has been working hard to put together a team for our fourth program year in South Africa, and we are excited to announce that we have placed 12 full-time Fellows and 4 part-time Faculty-in-Residence for the June 17-August 12 program in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa. Additionally, we are sending a Fellow to a pilot program in the Eastern Cape to assess a rural primary school site and to provide classroom resources and teacher training. In a few weeks time, we will also be announcing a rural preschool teacher training pilot program in the Sabi Sand area in conjunction with Singita game preserve where we will place 3 teacher trainers this summer.

Again this year we are sending experienced classroom teachers who will be involved with direct instruction of students as well as with professional teacher development, and all of the team will serve as tutors to nearly 500 LEAP students, adding valuable, severely needed resources and support to the teaching infrastructure at all of the LEAP Schools, including the new fourth site in Johannesburg.

Our team of fellows hails from around the U.S. again this year — the SF Bay Area, San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and New York! Our 2011 Team Orientation will be held in San Francisco on May 13-15, and we are all excited to begin this journey together.
