UW-Madison's Berto awarded KSTF Teaching Fellowship

July 26, 2016

UW-Madison's Tim Berto was recently chosen by the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) as a member of its 2016 cohort of Teaching Fellows.

Tim Berto
Berto, who is committed to teaching chemistry to high school students, ‚Äčis receiving his master’s degree in secondary science education from the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction. He also received a bachelor of science in chemistry from St. Norbert College in 2007, and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the University of Michigan in 2012.

This fall, Berto will begin his first year of teaching at Middleton (Wis.) High School.

This year, 34 early-career high school mathematics and science teachers were awarded KSTF Teaching Fellowships. The Foundation provides support and professional development designed specifically for early-career, high school mathematics and science teachers through its signature program — the KSTF Teaching Fellows Program.

With a focus on supporting teacher-led educational improvement in the classroom and beyond, KSTF Teaching Fellows gain access to a comprehensive suite of benefits for five years, including summer stipends, funds for professional development, grants for teaching materials, mentoring and support from experienced teachers and teacher educators, support for teacher leadership activities, and membership in a community of more than 300 like-minded peers in 40 states.

Berto is the fourth graduate of UW-Madison's secondary education program to earn this prestigious award since 2013. Past awardees,  who graduated from the School of Education's previous secondary education program, include Helen Yan (2015), Sarah Gray (2015), and Christopher Anderson (2013).
