Congratulations to three Rio Grande High School teachers who were selected to participate in the Stanford Hollyhock Fellowship for High School Teachers.

Freshmen English teacher Jessica Quintana and freshmen biology teachers Jennifer Beck and Rachel Zulick were selected to participate in the fellowship that brings 100 high school teachers from low-income schools to Stanford for two weeks of residential workshops over two consecutive summers.

The workshops are taught by university scholars and expert practitioners. Fellows will also receive online coaching and mentorship for two school years. Teachers are awarded a stipend for participation, and the program covers all travel and boarding expenses.

When they return from the summer program, teachers will develop their leadership skills by sharing what they've learned with their colleagues. Through its on-going support and creation of a strong professional community, the Stanford Hollyhock Fellowship program offers teachers an opportunity for renewal and re-commitment to one of the most challenging yet important jobs in our society.
