Charlotte Teachers Institute Welcomes 104 Fellows
The Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) welcomed 104 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) teachers as CTI Fellows in its innovative, interdisciplinary seminars for 2016.
"This year’s CTI Fellows represent a wide range of teachers in CMS, from new to veteran, pre-K to 12th grade and physics to digital art and language arts," said CTI Director Scott Gartlan. "We create important growth opportunities for CMS teacher-leaders looking to deepen their knowledge base and impact the lives of their students."
In each seminar, 13 CMS teachers (CTI Fellows) and a professor work closely on an in-depth study of a topic, with each teacher creating a new curriculum designed for his or her own students. CTI Fellows receive full access to both Davidson College and UNC Charlotte resources, as well as family memberships to Discovery Place. Upon completion, each fellow is awarded a $1,500 stipend and continuing education credits.
