Discover how our kids are being empowered to create their future!
Congratulations to five Natrona County School District teachers: Mr. Todd Hallsted, Mr. Dan Wright, & Mr. Carl Myers from NCHS, Vanessa Worrell from Sagewood Elementary, and Jessica Erdman from Poison Spider Elementary who were chosen out of a record number of Wyoming applicants, to receive the 2015 Fund For Teachers Fellowship Grant!
This fellowship will allow NCHS teachers, Mr. Todd Hallsted, Mr. Dan Wright and Mr. Carl Myers, to experience the environmental and cultural dynamics of American Samoa, one of the last places on Earth settled by humans and colonized by Europeans. They will use their experiences to develop an inter-disciplinary, project-based unit that expands ninth graders’ perceptions of how environment, culture and history influence each other over time.
After navigating the globe conducting field research, attending seminars, volunteering with community organizations or observing best practices, our Fellows inspire school communities with authentic learning. Ultimately the impacts are witnessed through enhanced student achievement.
These NCSD educators now join a cohort of more than 6,500 educators who pursued new knowledge and skills through Fund for Teachers’ self-designed fellowships.
