TULSA – Out of the 63 chosen for the Yale National Fellows program, eight were Tulsa Public School teachers.

Tulsa Public Schools sent a statement Friday saying that the chosen teachers would participate in national seminars as part of the Yale National Initiate to strengthen public school teaching.

The eight chosen teachers are: The eight participants from Tulsa Public Schools are Corrina Sue Christmas, Jackson Elementary; David Wayne Dean, Tulsa MET Junior High; Jo Anne Flory, East Central High School; Patricia Leann Hodge, Central High School; Jessica R. Johnson, Celia Clinton Elementary; Tim Smith, Memorial Junior High; Thomas Teague, Central Junior High; and Krista Baxter Waldron of Phoenix Rising.
