UW-Green Bay alumna earns Kellogg Foundation teaching fellowship
Kathryn McDonald of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., a 1989 graduate of UW-Green Bay’s master’s degree program in Environmental Science and Policy, was one of several dozen teacher candidates honored last week with selection to the Woodrow Wilson Michigan Teaching Fellows program funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The program supports outstanding, second-career professionals who declare their intention to enter the teaching profession and teach STEM subjects to students in Michigan’s highest-need secondary school. Each recipient receives a $30,000 stipend while completing an intensive master’s-level teacher education program at a participating Michigan university. McDonald will attend Wayne State University. She formerly worked as a naturalist, for 12 years, often leading field trips for K-12 students; as a regulatory and wetlands biologist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, for seven years; and as a research assistant in water quality and wetland studies before that.
