Secondary Education Community Fellows


Secondary pre-service teachers from WFU’s Department of Education take part in a semester-long student teaching internship in the local schools. At various points in the school year, a group of teachers, administrators, and professors from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WSFCS) and Wake Forest University are invited to lead workshops and serve on panels on topics pertinent to students’ current and forthcoming clinical experiences. The knowledge and understandings gained through these workshops serve as the guiding focus for weekly student teaching seminars throughout the spring semester. We greatly appreciate the support of our secondary education community fellows.
