Teacher in Residence Programs

Library of Congress Teachers in Residence work with the Library's education staff to develop programs and resources that support teachers nationwide. In addition, the Library hosts Distinguished Educator Fellows as part of the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship program administered by the U.S. Department of Energy.

The application period for the 2022-23 Teacher in Residence Program will open in early 2022.
