UVA Fellowship Program Helps Teachers Prepare to Give Back
The Fellowship Program is sponsored by the UVA Curry School of Education.
Three African-American teaching fellows from the University of Virginia's Curry School are getting ready to give back to Charlottesville and Albemarle County schools.
The Fellowship Program gives the students financial support, mentoring, and professional guidance as they learn to become teachers.
Even after they walk across the stage to receive their diplomas, the program helps them transition into their first teaching jobs in Charlottesville and Albemarle.
"ATF has shown me the importance of being here and staying here, not just getting the degree from UVA but really staying here to invest in the community that really invested in me while I was a student at UVA," said teaching fellow Tamara Wilkerson.
Wilkerson received her Bachelor of Arts and her Masters of Teaching Sunday. She will teach Spanish at Jack Jouett Middle School.
Wilkerson says she hopes to impact her students as much as the UVA community has impacted her.
