See their Engaging New Curricula Published on the CTI Website

CTI celebrated its 2019 Fellows’ achievements during the Fellows’ Finale Celebration at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in December. 88 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers were recognized as Fellows for successfully completing CTI seminars and designing engaging new curricula for their students.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Earnest Winston welcomed Fellows, Leaders and guests to Fellows’ Finale, saying: “I want to thank CTI for the tremendous partnership. As I spoke with our teachers this evening one thing was extremely clear to me: how much you all love this program. I heard, ‘This program helps me build my capacity,’ and ‘It allows me to strengthen my profession so that ultimately our children are the beneficiaries of this work.’”

In an anonymous survey of all 88 Fellows, 100% indicated they had gained knowledge and skills to positively impact their teaching. Fellows’ curriculum units are posted on the CTI website where they can be accessed by other teachers worldwide.

CTI Director Scott Gartlan applauded Fellows at the Finale event saying, “Together, as 88 Fellows, you have taught 12,883 PreK-12 students in 50 CMS schools this year. Together, you have amassed a total of 2,253 hours in eight, university professor-led seminars over the course of seven months. Together, you embody the dedication and commitment to teaching and learning we expect of our students and colleagues.”

The 2019 CTI Fellows represent grade levels preK-12, and a wide range of subjects from language arts, world history, foreign languages and art, to math, sciences, technology, and more.

Each Fellow who completed all program requirements received three continuing education units and a $1,500 stipend.

CTI presents eight, concurrent seminars each year, running April to December. CTI Fellows have created over 600 curriculum units since the program’s inception in 2009.
