Special Fellows Events

Because our Fellows want to be part of a community of exceptional teachers and kindred spirits, The Academy organizes evening events that are high-, middle-, and lowbrow. All are free to Fellows. We even have a softball team.

Workshops in our Teachers Teaching Teachers series are led by Fellows of The Academy for Teachers.

Tickets to our special Fellows events are distributed by lottery.
