Tuva Kicks Off 2018-19 Cohort of Tuva Fellows, Bringing the Data Literacy Movement to More Teachers and Students

Tuva is excited to launch the Tuva Fellows program with an inaugural cohort of 14 Fellows from schools in 11 states across the country!

NEW YORK, NY (June 25, 2018)

The 2018-19 Tuva Fellows are:

  • Anne Marie Martin (West Charlotte High School, North Carolina)
  • Athena Barrios (Monterey Bay Aquarium/Aptos High School, California)
  • Brock Baxter (Osage City High School, Kansas)
  • Jacqueline Muratore (Mount Saint Mary Academy, New Jersey)
  • Janine Malavasi (Martin County, Florida)
  • Jen Loescher (Sedway Middle School, Nevada)
  • Joann Purcell (Downers Grove North High School, Illinois)
  • John Moore Van Dis (Edna Drinkwater School, Maine)
  • Karen Nee (Essex Middle School, Vermont)
  • Rebekah Sluss (Weed High School, California)
  • Shannon Harris (Sunset Elementary, Oklahoma)
  • Shaun Gross (Grants Pass High School - GPSD#7, Oregon)
  • Toni Barboza (Sebasticook Valley Middle School - RSU#19, Maine)
  • Tyler Pulis (Lakeview Secondary School, North Carolina)

These 14 Tuva Fellows teach various subjects including science, math, social studies, ELA, and others across grade levels in K-12 informal and formal education. Over the course of the next year, the Fellows will be collaborating and working together to bring the imperative and hard work of integrating data, data literacy, and student-friendly, research-based technology into teaching, learning, and assessments. As a cohort they will work to advance their own skills and develop ways to share their combined expertise with the rest of us.

As Tuva continues to lead the teaching, learning, and assessment of data literacy in K-12 education, we are excited for how the Tuva Fellows will extend the reach of Tuva in more districts across the country.
