College of Charleston Teaching Fellows

Teaching fellows is an organization through CERRA that provides quality teacher education to college


Happy Wednesday!

For this weeks , the spotlight is on Jay Scott.

“I want to show students the magic of reading and writing through culture, leaving no page unturned!”


Welcome to this weeks from Morgan Triplett!
“I want to teach because I want to make sure that school/the classroom is a safe space for all students. I never want a student to feel anxious or uncomfortable in a classroom because it can disrupt and ruin their learning experience. I want to help all of my future students to be able to find a genuine love for learning.” 🍎


Welcome back from fall break! 🍎


this week comes from senior, Benjamin Harley!

“I want to be a teacher because I saw the impact my parents have had on their students, and I want to do the same thing. I love physical education because I love being active. I want to inspire others to be active in whatever capacity that may be. I chose it so I can help students learn to be active from a young age which will hopefully translate to an active lifestyle!”


Today, October 5th is - this year's theme is "Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery"

"This theme recognizes teachers for their tireless efforts even during times like the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. Due to their hardworking nature, teachers are known to help young children grow and learn, even in shaping the future generation."
