2019 – 2020 Annual Report

TFI Adapts and Thrives During a Difficult Year

As the whole world and Charlotte faced and adapted to a pandemic, TFI’s long history of good management had TFI in a strong position to weather these challenges and even thrive as we moved all TFI programming to a virtual format.

Both Transition to Virtual Programming and Increase Programming

After assessing the landscape teachers and students faced as a result of a pandemic, TFI not only transitioned all programming to a virtual format but increased the number of programs in the Fall of 2020 threefold (for example: https://bit.ly/TFIKnowledgeGap ). This also resulted in increased high quality video content on TFI’s YouTube Channel

A Year of Positive Results as Our Fellows Face Teaching in a Pandemic

TFI rates as a 2020 Top Nonprofit by Great Nonprofits, the leading platform for socially-sourced ratings based on 2020 reviews by our Fellows. http://bit.ly/TFIReviews

TFI again achieved a Platinum Rating on Guide Star (where detailed financial information is available).

Decision for the TFI Class of 2020 to be the TFI Class of 2021

To ensure the Class of 2020 can fully benefit from the TFI experience, the Class of 2020 will get to experience the in person TFI Summer Symposium as the Class of 2020/2021.

TFI’s Virtual Offerings Supported Teachers in the Virtual Classroom

In 2020 TFI “has organized some great sessions for teachers to attend via Zoom. I have enjoyed learning more about resilience and mindfulness and what that looks like for teachers in their personal lives as well as how to apply that within the classroom setting… I was able to immediately take what I learned and apply it into actual practice. I look forward to more sessions in the future. I really appreciate how Teaching Fellows Institute is keeping abreast with (the) latest research and bringing knowledgeable speakers and researchers in those fields to us.”
