New classes were not the only thing that started up this week at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education (TLTE) began piloting its new Practice Fellows program. The idea of practice fellows is to find excellent K-12 educators with advanced credentials who bring their practice expertise to campus. The initial fellows are Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) educators Janet Eckerson (Lincoln High School) and Sarah Staples-Farmer (Lincoln East High School), who will continue to be K-12 teachers as they also serve the university.
