The Rowland Fellowship offers a unique professional development opportunity for secondary teachers in Vermont. The Rowland Foundation seeks to fund proposals that transform an aspect of the school that will positively impact its culture and climate. KSTF Senior Fellow Anne Watson was selected as a 2015 Rowland Fellow. Her proposal to create a public boarding program at Montpelier High School will advance with a $100,000 grant from the Rowland Foundation. As a Rowland Fellow, Anne will take a sabbatical from the classroom in the fall of 2015, to allow time for the development of an action plan for her proposal. In the spring of 2016, she will return to her classroom with a reduced course load, to allow for further work on the boarding program.
