Congratulations to CTI’s 2011 Fellows!

Congratulations to CTI’s dedicated, creative 2011 cohort of Fellows! After nearly nine months of thinking, writing, teaching and learning, the 2011 CTI Fellows and their seminar leaders (UNC Charlotte and Davidson College faculty members) enjoyed some fun and reflection at the annual Fellows’ Finale celebration Dec. 13 at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.

As part of a growing end-of-year tradition, CTI Director Scott Gartlan shared the collective impact of these 82 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers by the numbers:

Together these teachers span all 13 grade levels from kindergarten through high school.  They represent more than 15 subjects – from elementary teachers to biology teachers, world history, American history, and art history, language arts and costume design, Spanish, French, German, earth science, environmental science, physics, math and technology.

Together they have taught for 960 years with 762 of those years in CMS, and together they plan on teaching for an additional 1,163 years.  They will teach over 10,000 students during the next 12 months.  These 82 teachers plan to share the curriculum units they wrote for CTI with over 500 other CMS teachers, and 7,200 students will be taught the units Fellows created this year.  Together they will have spent 2,730 hours attending CTI seminars at UNC Charlotte, Davidson College, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and the Mint Museum.  And together these teachers have written approximately 1,640 pages of new curriculum that will be accessible to teachers around the world through CTI’s and the Yale National Initiative’s websites.

Cheers to our 2011 CTI Fellows!
