Jackson Center seeking applicants for Teacher Fellowship Program

JAMESTOWN — The Robert H. Jackson Center is seeking qualified applicants for its upcoming Teacher Fellowship Program. The program will run from Monday, Aug. 12 to Friday, Aug. 16, at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, with additional programming at Chautauqua Institution, Cummins Jamestown Engine Plant and surrounding local organizations.

The Teacher Fellow Program seeks to engage educators in designing creative projects, such as lesson plans and/or outreach projects about Robert H. Jackson. Using lectures, the Jackson Center Archives, and other mediums, teachers will create meaningful and engaging lessons through the relevance of Justice Jackson’s body of work. These lessons will inspire children to discuss and reflect on the universal principles of equality, fairness and justice that were apparent in the life and achievements of Robert H. Jackson.

Interested certified elementary or secondary level educators teaching in Western New York or Northwest Pennsylvania with at least three years of classroom experience that are scheduled to teach during the 2019 – 2020 school year are invited to apply to the Teacher Fellow Program. Instructions on how to apply can be found at roberthjackson.org/teacher-fellows/ or by calling 483-6646. Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, May 1.

This program is made possible through The Cummins Foundation, Chautauqua Region Community Foundation and the generosity of donors.
