Bertschi and UW Offer a Fellowship for Aspiring Black Educators
Bertschi School offers a full-time teaching associate job and up to $10,000 each year toward tuition for an aspiring Black educator enrolled in a University of Washington teaching certification program.
As student teaching becomes part of the candidate’s program, Bertschi will work with the accrediting college to support student teaching at Bertschi School. The fellow will work with two classrooms and teachers at one grade level (1st-5th grade). Other opportunities include observations of other classrooms and mentoring and support throughout the program.
