As we reflect on 2020, we're grateful for all of the amazing educators and leaders who have gone above-and-beyond this year for those they teach and lead. Moreover, we are so grateful for all of the small sacrifices made that have allowed us to collectively grow despite the additional challenges of this year.
Whitney Carter (ATC '18), Alex Garcia (ATC '18), Kendra Ide (ATC '16), and Bernard Smith (ATC '17) have been selected to serve as the directors of logistics, facilitation, coaching and equity, respectively, for the 2021 ATC Summer Institute. Applications for summer mentors are due Sunday, January 17.
Susie O'Neal, Ariana Rowles, Riley Tribble, and Erica Williams have been selected for ATC fellowships to teach 4-8 social studies, 7-12 ELA, 7-12 social studies, and 7-12 family/consumer science, respectively, in the Arkansas Delta. The next deadline for fellowship applications is January 1, 2021.
“Growing Where Needed: A Strategic Plan for 2020-2025” highlights nine main priorities that will allow us to double the number of fellows supported each year, ultimately reaching over 40,000 students and saving nearly $2,000,000 through increased efficiencies.
Why can we give friends, family, loved ones, students, coworkers, etc. all the great advice they need, while we don’t actually show up for ourselves in that same way consistently? Is it just me that notices this? This year I think I’ve learned something of this answer as it pertains to me.
