The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is looking for the best and brightest to ensure equal access to education and to promote educational excellence throughout the nation. If you are a highly- motivated, creative individual who would like to work for an agency that establishes policies on federal financial aid for education, distributes as well as monitors those funds; collects data on America's schools and disseminates research; focuses national attention on key educational issues; and prohibits discrimination and ensures equal access to education, ED is the place for you!
This application is for the U.S. Department of Education Teaching Ambassador Fellowship program, specifically for Classroom Fellows who work for ED on a part-time basis in addition to their primary work as teachers around the country. Teaching Ambassador Fellows are classroom teachers hired through the Intergovernmental Personnel Act Authority. Classroom Fellows are paid on an hourly basis to assist the Department at ED’s expense and gain valuable professional development and experience with federal materials and information to share with their colleagues and school community.
The Teaching Ambassador Fellowship supports the Department’s mission by enabling a cadre of outstanding teachers to contribute their classroom expertise to the national dialogue and in turn facilitate discussions with educators across the country. For Fellows, the program adds greater knowledge of educational policy and leadership to their toolkits to contribute to solutions at all levels for long intractable challenges in education.
The Teaching Ambassador Fellowship program was initiated in 2008. Five cohorts of Fellows totaling 80 teachers have participated in the Fellowship since, including 23 teachers selected as Washington Fellows serving in Washington, DC as full-time employees of the Department of Education and 57 teachers who have served as Classroom Fellows serving part-time with the Department in addition to their roles as teachers.For more information about the Teaching Ambassador Fellowship program, please visit: http://www2.ed.gov/programs/teacherfellowship/index.html.
