SCORE Announces 2017-18 Tennessee Educator Fellowship
The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) has announced that 50 educators have been chosen for the 2017-18 class of the Tennessee Educator Fellowship.
The Tennessee Educator Fellowship is a yearlong program that equips educators to advocate for their students and their profession as they continue teaching. Entering its fourth year, the fellowship now accepts not only teachers but also school counselors and librarians. Since 2014, the fellowship has helped nearly 100 teachers to contribute to the discussion about education policy by appearing at public speaking engagements, inviting policy makers into their classrooms, writing about their education experience in state and national publications, creating regional professional networks, and serving on state-level policy committees.
The 2017-18 Tennessee Educator Fellows for the Jackson-Madison County School System are:
Shannon Davis – Second-grade English language Arts teacher at Thelma Barker Elementary. Davis has been teaching for 11 years.
Jessica Peccolo-Donnell – K-8 librarian at Community Montessori School. Peccolo-Donnell has worked in education for 14 years.
