Through Broader Impact

African American Teaching Fellows (AATF) Charlottesville-Albemarle

The mission of the AATF is to recruit, support, develop and retain a cadre of African American teachers to serve the schools of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. In 2007, Charlottesville students were 46% African American, yet only 15% of the teaching staff was African American. The NRAO established a partnership with AATF to provide financial support for two Fellows. One of the Fellows was awarded the NRAO Science Fellow to support her in teaching science. This will assist NRAO to build a pipeline to support science careers in the community and aligns with our broader impact initiatives.
