You would figure with all the people needing a job that there would not be so many holes to fill. Teaching is one such sector that could use more skilled people, at least in my area. It seems that the hardest classes to obtain teachers are for science and math. I loved math when I was in school but despised science and only took the minimum requirements for that.

The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship provides candidates a $30,000 stipend to complete a master’s degree program in the STEM field. STEM consists of science, technology, engineering, and math. There are 14 participating universities around the country you can apply to. The candidate must have completed an undergraduate degree in a STEM field by June 2011 and have graduated with at least a 3.0 GPA. Above all be committed to the program and its goals. Once you have finished your degree, you will teach 3 years in a high-need school as well as receive support and mentoring in the classroom. For more information and to apply you must go to www.wwteachingfellowship.org.

We had a few new teachers when I was in high school and it just astounded me at how young they looked. I just hope the fellows coming out of this program have the courage and drive to stand up to the children no matter how horrible they might be. There certainly will be some who want to learn and that in and of itself should be the motivating factor that you are making a difference in a child’s mind.
