GO's Teacher Policy Fellowship is a yearlong, stipended opportunity for a small cohort of current Oakland teachers to Learn, Think, and Lead about the future of education. See below for more information.

We're looking for teachers who have: 

  1. A growth mind set and are intellectually curious
  2. a strong sense of responsibility & belief that effective teaching matters and
  3. an openness to new information and perspectives.

Who are these teachers? You know them. They are leaders and big picture thinkers. They are looking to the future of education. It might be you. It might be the person in the classroom next door. It might be your child's teacher. 

If you are interested, or know this teacher, please take a minute to:

  1. Nominate a teacher: If you know teacher who is a good match, please use this recommendation form. We'll follow up with an invitation to attend a dinner and apply. People are honored by the nomination.
