Congratulations to our College of Education Senior, Sarah Owens who has been accepted into the Masa Israel Teaching Fellows program. Sarah is an Elementary Education major with a concentration in reading. Masa Israel Teaching Fellows is a 10-month fellowship for college graduates between the ages of 21 and 30.

Through this program, Sarah will be teaching English to grades 3-8 in Rishon LeZion which is the 4th largest city in Israel.  She will be teaching 4 days a week, and taking Hebrew classes weekly. Sarah learned of this fellowship while on her Taglit-birthright trip to Israel last summer with her sister. The birthright trip is a free 10-day trip to Israel for Jewish men and women, ages 18-26. We’re so proud of you and can’t wait to see what you accomplish in Israel, Sarah!
