Meet National Geographic’s 2023 Grosvenor Teacher Fellows

The Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship (GTF) is a professional development opportunity for pre-K–12 educators made possible by a partnership between Lindblad Expeditions and the National Geographic Society. 

The 2023 fellows are the first cohort to be selected since the COVID-19 pandemic began. This year’s Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship class is made up of 50 exemplary educators, representing everything from the visual arts to Spanish, psychology, career and workforce readiness, and much more.

Our 2023 GTFs come together from 24 states, 1 U.S. Territory, and 5 Canadian provinces. As they join the ranks of more than 300 other Grosvenor Teacher Fellows, they’ll grow together as they experience the best of what this program has to offer: professional recognition and development, and connections and community with like-minded educators.

As part of their Fellowship, members of the 2023 cohort take on a two-year leadership commitment, serving as program ambassadors, fostering connections and collaboration with other educators in the National Geographic community and beyond. You can learn more about each of them by reading their bios below.

More about the National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship

The Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship was founded by Sven-Olof Lindblad in honor of Gilbert M. Grosvenor, chairman emeritus, National Geographic Society, in recognition of his decades-long work supporting pre-K–12 educators and promoting geography education across the United States and Canada.

Fellows also take on a two-year leadership commitment to support National Geographic’s education initiatives. Throughout their commitment, Fellows may be asked to conduct webinars, co-design resources, participate in meetups, and serve as mentors to other educators.
