American Fidelity Expands AF Teacher Fellowship

2021 AF Teacher Fellows

For the fifth consecutive year, American Fidelity is expanding its AF Teacher Fellowship program to help more teachers in the community.

I would tell a fellow teacher that they should definitely join this program. It’s a great learning opportunity.”

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For the fifth consecutive year, American Fidelity is expanding its AF Teacher Fellowship program to help more teachers in the community.

The AF Teacher Fellowship program gives teachers the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in a corporate IT setting, as well as networking with other teachers, providing knowledge and skills that they can then take back to their classrooms to help students prepare for technology-based careers.

Applications for this year’s program are open to third- through 12th-grade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) teachers and are due by Feb. 25.

The selected candidates will work in American Fidelity’s software development, IT security, data or technical infrastructure areas for the summer, earning $30 per hour. Additionally, the teachers receive a $2,000 stipend for their classrooms upon completion of the program.

There is also built-in flexibility, with up to two weeks of unpaid off time available.

“It really opened my eyes to the new avenues in technology that I didn’t even realize existed,” said Shawnee Public Schools teacher Whitney Gonzales, a 2021 AF Teacher Fellow. “It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in a summer activity that I’ve ever done.”

The 2022 class begins on June 6 and will expand to 15 teachers, becoming the largest class to date. Interested teachers can find more information and apply at https://americanfidelity.com/teacher-fellowship.

“I would tell a fellow teacher that they should definitely join this program,” said Moore Public Schools teacher Linda Sullivan. “It’s a great learning opportunity.”

American Fidelity has strict COVID-19 restrictions in place at their OKC headquarters. The 2022 program will either be all virtual or a mix of virtual and in-person depending on the ability to safely gather at that time. Interviews will be conducted virtually on March 18 and proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for consideration.
