MƒA Master Teacher II+ Fellowship Invitation to Interview

Teachers who meet the admissions criteria will be invited to a 30-min in-person interview before a final fellowship determination is made.

The purpose of in-person interviews is to gain a better understanding of how applicants have advanced their influence, thought leadership, and practices as a result of the transformative learning opportunities offered in their prior MƒA Fellowship.

The application process made me think about how well I know my students, how I am making math meaningful to them, and how I think of myself as a teacher. It made me want to challenge myself even more.
