Jefferson Teacher Earns ‘Most Prestigious Award’ for History Teachers
Congratulations to Jefferson High School teacher Mrs. Nicole Frazer on her acceptance to the James Madison Graduate Fellowship! Let's celebrate her! The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation offers $24,000 James Madison Graduate Fellowships to individuals desiring to become outstanding teachers of the American Constitution at the secondary school level. As funding permits, the Foundation plans to offer one fellowship per state per year.
It all started with the C-SPAN bus visiting Jefferson in the fall of 2019. Through that opportunity Nicole made connections that ultimately led to her securing an amazing C-SPAN Teaching Fellowship in the summer of 2020. Not only has she been a member of the C-SPAN fellowship, she also joined the iCivics Educator network, upped her EduTwitter game, and became a part of the Center for Civics Education Cohort for Project Citizen. All these opportunities laid the foundation for one of her greatest educational accomplishments: becoming a James Madison Fellow.
The James Madison Fellowship will pay for her to get a master’s degree in her content area so she can continue to hone her craft and become a better educator for her students. When she finishes her degree, her next goal will be to add dual credit courses to Jefferson High School and bring even more opportunities to her students.
Nicole Frazer is a PLC (Professional Learning Community) leader, an active member of the district’s Curriculum Leadership Team, and also a Curriculum Implementation Leader. She is a phenomenal educator in the classroom who is always looking to push herself to find new ways to keep her students engaged. Her knowledge and expertise as an educator are definitely something to be admired. She is an asset to the Jefferson staff. Congratulations, Nicole!
