Recommend a Teacher for an Einstein Fellowship
Triangle Coalition for Science and Technology Education
Do you know a K-12 educator who would make a difference in Washington, DC, as an Einstein Fellow, someone who could provide an educator's perspective to legislators and program officers?

The Einstein Fellowship program brings outstanding mathematics, science, and technology education teachers to Washington, DC, to spend a school year working on Capitol Hill or in one of several participating Federal agencies. The purpose of the program, as stated in the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Act of 1994, is to provide outstanding educators with an opportunity to serve in the public policy arena and to bring the expertise, unique insights, and know-how of classroom teachers to the Congress and appropriate branches of the Federal government.

The 2008-09 Fellows have been chosen, but the application process for the next cycle will open in fall 2009. Information about the program: The Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program
