Fellows work to support the Department's mission by employing a cadre of teachers to gain significant knowledge about the Department's information and resources, share this information with other educators across the country, and contribute their classroom expertise to the national dialogue. Teaching Ambassador Fellows are outstanding teachers, with a record of leadership, strong communication skills, and insights into educational policy based in classroom expertise.  It is important that the Fellowship reflect the great diversity of our national student body and the contexts in which they learn.
