Sarah D. Barder Fellowship

Each year, CTY students who live in California, Nevada, and Maryland and who attended a CTY summer program or enrolled in a CTY online program the previous year are invited to nominate a teacher for recognition as an outstanding educator. These nominated teachers are then invited to apply to the fellows program. A committee of CTY educators reviews the applications and selects 10 to 15 teachers for recognition. The class year is determined by the calendar year in which the teacher is nominated. Teachers honored at the 2019 Sarah D. Barder Conference were nominated in 2018. The Class of 2018 Sarah D. Barder Fellows are listed below.
