Dear Friends of Knowles,
The year ending May 31, 2018 (FY2018) was one of exciting changes that mark the beginning of a new era for our organization. But it also marked a renewed commitment on our part to trusting teachers to lead transformation in mathematics and science education. We ended some projects and started others. We welcomed new people into our community, and we wished others good luck as they transitioned to new adventures. Our new website, launched December 22, 2017, celebrates these new beginnings, successful completions and enduring commitments.
On May 11, 2018, we welcomed 34 new math and science teachers to the Knowles community as members of the 2018 Cohort, including eight who taught abroad, three published authors, one with a PhD in chemistry, one civil and environmental engineering researcher, one urban farmer and one engineer. These new teachers hail from 18 different credential programs and are teaching in 13 different states. With the addition of the 34 members of the 2018 Cohort, our national network grew to a total of 345 outstanding educators across the nation: 161 Teaching Fellows and 184 Senior Fellows.
