The University of Delaware, and the Appoquinimink, Christina, Colonial, New Castle County Vo-Tech and Red Clay Consolidated
School Districts, in affiliation with the Yale National Initiative® to strengthen teaching in public schools, have established the Delaware
Teachers Institute in New Castle County. Each year, the Institute offers a limited number of fellowships for teachers to participate in
content area seminars, and to learn the Teachers Institute approach to professional development. To be considered, the eligibility
criteria below must be met. A building principal must support this application, and a district curriculum specialist must review it. NOTE: Your application will be routed to your supervisors electronically using the emails you provide in the application. You will receive an email indicating that the supervisor emails have been sent so that you know when to follow up with them to ensure they electronically approve your application. BE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK THE SPELLING IN THE EMAIL ADDRESSES TO AVOID DELAYED APPROVALS.
Teachers who successfully complete the program and submit seminar leader approved curriculum units will receive a $1250 stipend and 50 hours of professional development toward licensure.
