Our fellows

This fellowship brings together teachers from all around the Midland area. Teacher led teams work together to create an engaging project centered around sustainability. Students will work focus on a real environmental problem within their community and work to form solutions. Fellows have the opportunity to network with local environmental organizations and form long-lasting connections to use within their classrooms.

In addition to supporting our teachers throughout their initial Fellowship year, we also provide them with ongoing benefits, such as:

  • Access to professional development opportunities and resources

  • Subscription to DITF Newsletter: Teaching Towards Sustainability, which highlights grant opportunities and teaching resources on a monthly basis

  • Mentorship and networking opportunities with other Fellows

  • Eligibility for additional funding to continue place-based sustainability work

  • Opportunities to pilot new programs and resources
