[Make a Difference. Become a NYC Teaching Fellow.]

The Program
The NYC Teaching Fellows program recruits talented and dedicated individuals to raise student achievement in the New York City classrooms that need teachers the most.

Fellows become full-time teachers within a few months of enrolling. Today, most Fellows for our 2013 program will be trained to teach either special education or science (where shortages of qualified teachers are most critical) although a small number of Fellows may also teach in other subject areas.

Who Can Apply?
No previous teaching experience or education coursework is necessary. Fellows enroll in an intensive summer training program and then earn a subsidized master's degree while teaching in a New York City public school.

NYC Teaching Fellows come from a wide range of backgrounds and careers but all share the same commitment to raising the academic achievement of children living in poverty. Strong applicants will demonstrate a track record of success in past endeavors, perseverance in the face of challenges, an ability to think critically, a desire to grow professionally, and an openness to collaboration and feedback.

Why Become a Fellow?
• Competitive starting salary plus full benefits
• Subsidized masters degree in education
• Intensive, eight-week summer training and non-taxable training stipend

This year, Fellows who apply by December 20 will have the option to extend their training by working in a NYC classroom for ten weeks prior to the start of summer training. The Spring Classroom Apprenticeship gives 2013 Fellows firsthand classroom experience and deepens their understanding of how a NYC public school operates during the traditional school year.

Today, more than one in ten NYC public school teachers started their career through the Teaching Fellows. This is your opportunity to join a growing group of motivated and energetic professionals who are answering the call to teach in the classrooms that need them most.
