“Our work is about the citizens we’re growing, the leaders they will become, and the future they will shape.”
– Jodi Hufendick, High School Teacher, WA
“This has been one of my greatest learning experiences. I get to interact with a variety of materials and I feel like I have specifically been involved to push for quality curriculum and equity in education.”
– Casie Jones, Director of School Support, Memphis TN
“Being a reviewer helps to develop me and grow more in the profession. I’m always looking to learn new things, learn new methods and learn from other people. This was a perfect opportunity for me to grow so I could better serve others.”
– Adrianne Sublett, Elementary Literacy Advisor, Memphis, TN
“When it comes to materials and the kind of things we do at EdReports, publishers are listening to what teachers are saying about what’s quality and what’s not. For so long teacher voice had been absent from that conversation. But there are thousands of us out here working. Let’s work together.”
– Arthur Everett, High School Teacher, NYC

Klawe Fellowship

The Klawe (Kla-vay) Fellowship is an opportunity for current and former EdReports reviewers to build their leadership skills as they advocate for high quality instructional materials at the local, state, and national levels. Fellows will develop and execute impact projects that support EdReports’ mission to increase the capacity of teachers, administrators, and leaders to seek, identify and demand high quality instructional materials.

Dr. Maria Klawe is an inspirational and tireless advocate who was instrumental in the creation of EdReports. She is a renowned computer scientist and scholar who began her tenure as the first female president of Harvey Mudd College in 2006. After recognizing the value that information about high quality materials could have for the field, she led a team to design and ultimately launch EdReports.org. She has served as our board chair since 2014. Dr. Klawe has devoted attention to improving K-12 science and mathematics education and removing gender and racial disparity in these fields. She has been nationally recognized for her commitment and success in diversifying Harvey Mudd’s student population, where half of the population at this elite science and engineering school are female and half represent diverse racial backgrounds. Dr. Klawe inspires us at EdReports daily.

Cohort 2

The 2020-21 Klawe Fellowship will be comprised of 6-10 current and former EdReports reviewers who have completed at least one review cycle. Fellows will have a passion for supporting all students and teachers with high quality materials, interest in building new skills, and an idea or project to advance our mission. Applicants must be able to commit to a year of study, practice, and advocacy.
