Ottenstroer Fellow “Finding Macbeth” in the UK This Summer
janet robinson

Upper School English Teacher Janet Robinson is on her way to the United Kingdom to walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare’s tragic hero, Macbeth, as part of her Ottenstroer Fellowship. Robinson will tour Scotland for one week, making stops in Perth and Inverness as she traces the places Shakespeare mentions in the play. She will then head to Northumberland, England, before visiting York and London to see "King Lear" at the Globe Theater and visit Westminster Cathedral.

The Ottenstroer Fellowships identify and reward excellence in teaching at Bolles by providing opportunities for professional growth among faculty. Funded by a grant from Duane and Sue Ottenstroer, the fellowships are awarded annually to members of the Bolles faculty who have had a significant impact on the learning process and have a plan for future improvement. Interested candidates prepare an application describing a project to be funded by the fellowship, usually for summer study or research. Ottenstroer Fellowships are available to teachers at every grade level, and the recipients are chosen each spring by an administrative selection committee.
