Make a Difference. Teach Special Education in NYC. - NYC Teaching Fellows (New York, NY)
[Make a Difference. Teach Special Education in NYC.]
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 Work in Special Education?
- Â· Competitive starting salary plus full benefits
- Â· Subsidized masters degree in education
- Â· Intensive, eight-week summer training and non-taxable training stipend
Being a special educator means delivering the general education content to students with disabilities in a way that is specialized to meet their specific needs. Fellows who teach in special education classrooms provide important academic opportunities to students in need of those services.
Approximately 16 percent of New York City's more than one million students received special education services during the 2011-2012 school year. Today, 22 percent of all special education teachers in New York City are Teaching Fellows.
