USD Graduate Earns Fellowship to Teach in NJ
Bailey Johnson, from Ankeny, Iowa, graduated from USD in May with a B.S. in chemistry and a B.A. in Spanish. She’s one of 62 Woodrow Wilson New Jersey teaching fellows for 2016. The competitive program recruits recent graduates and career changers with strong backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and prepares them to teach in high-need secondary schools.
Each fellow receives $30,000 toward a specially designed master’s degree program based on a year-long classroom experience. In return, they commit to teach three years in urban and rural New jersey schools most in need of STEM teachers. Johnson will receive her degree through Rutgers University-Camden.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced the fellows last week. More information on the program is available at woodrow.org/fellowships/ww-teaching-fellowships/.
