We're thrilled to announce that 30 EL Education educators have officially entered the ranks of EL Education Fund for Teachers fellows. For those of you keeping track, that's 518 EL Education fellows since the inception of our partnership with Fund for Teachers in 2004!

Fund for Teachers (FFT) is a nonprofit organization working to enrich the personal and professional growth of teachers by supporting them in pursuing unique opportunities around the world that make the greatest impact on their classroom practice.

This year's projects include attendance at Germany's International Conference of Math Education, tracing the footsteps of Genghis Kahn across Mongolia, and joining a tour of India led by the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Arun Gandhi.
