Congratulations to Ms. Christy Davis, 6th Grade Social Studies Teacher! She has been chosen to be a Rural Trust Global Teacher Fellow! Ms. Davis will be traveling to Cuba this summer with the help of the grant she has been awarded! Way to go, Ms. Davis!
The Rural Trust's Global Teacher Fellowship program provides awards for up to 25 teachers annually to support the professional and personal development of rural educators.
The awards (up to $5,000 for individual teachers and $10,000 for a team of two or more teachers) support teachers’ participation in self-designed summer learning experiences and a two-day place-based learning institute in the fall following their summer experience.
This fellowship is a stand-alone grant not meant to supplement other grant funds for larger projects.
Teachers are encouraged to center their learning in an international travel and study experience, out of which they develop interdisciplinary, place-based learning curricula aligned with their specific state and local content standards.
Eligibility: Any K–12 teacher working full-time and teaching at least 60% time in a public rural community classroom can apply for the fellowship. Counselors, media specialists, and other school personnel working or teaching in a public rural school setting at least 60% of their paid work time may also apply. Each applicant much have 4 years teaching experience by the fellowship start date.
The Rural Trust defines a rural community by National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) locale codes: 32 (Town, Distant); 33 (Town, Remote); 41 (Rural, Fringe); 42 (Rural, Distant); or 43 (Rural, Remote). If your school is listed in one of these locale codes, you are eligible to apply. If your school or district is REAP eligible, you may also apply. For more details on eligibility, see the FAQs page.

Collecting Box Tops is a very easy way to help our school! You might think they are only worth 10 cents, but when collected by many, they really add up! This was with only a small portion of our school population participating. Just think what we could do if everyone clipped those little rectangles! You can find Box Tops on thousands of your favorite products, from cereals to Avery Office Products to Hanes T-shirts to printer paper.
