The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences (CEHHS) congratulates the 2016-17 recipients of the Tennessee Educator Fellowship awarded by SCORE, the State Collaborative on Reforming Education. The fellowship is a year long program that equips teachers to advocate for their students and their profession as they continue to work in their classrooms. The program allows these teachers to contribute to the program by having a voice in making education policy, attending public speaking engagements, inviting policymakers into their classrooms, writing about their education experience in state and national publications, creating regional professional networks and serving on state-level policy committees.
Among the recipients this year are four graduates from CEHHS. These recipients include:
- Erica Adkins teaches fifth-grade math and science at Bellevue Middle School in Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. Adkins has been teaching for four years. Bachelor & Masters-UTK.
- August Askins teaches eighth-grade science at Holston Middle School in Knox County Schools. Askins has been teaching for 12 years. Bachelor & Masters-UTK.
- Erin Doran teaches third grade at University School in Washington County Schools. Doran has been teaching for 14 years. Bachelor, Masters, & EDS-UTK.
