The NYC Teaching Fellows program is an alternative certification program that has accepted a great many Breakthrough teachers over the years. With NYCTF, you’d start teaching right away while working toward your M.A.T. in your off hours, subsidized by the program. If you’re ready to get into a classroom right away and you want funding toward your Master’s degree, this might be the program for you.
Because effective teachers dramatically increase their students’ academic success, the mission of the NYC Teaching Fellows program is to recruit and prepare high-quality, dedicated individuals to become teachers who raise student achievement in the New York City classrooms that need them most. Each Fellow uses his/her diverse experiences, knowledge, and achievements to positively affect the lives of students, while working toward a subsidized Master’s degree. Participation in the Fellowship does not require teaching experience or previous education coursework. From more than 115,000 applicants over the past eight years, NYCTF has provided New York City classrooms with over 13,000 high-quality new teachers.
Now in our ninth year, the NYC Teaching Fellows program continues its commitment to recruiting a diverse pool of highly dedicated professionals. We are currently accepting applications to the June 2009 program, during which Fellows will attend a seven-week training program starting in June and be certified to teach full-time for the 2009-10 school year. Applications are available on the NYC Teaching Fellows website (www.nycteachingfellows.org) and our next deadline is January 12, 2009.
Whether you are a career changer or a recent graduate, we invite you to start a new journey with us and be a part of this extraordinary effort. If you have questions about the Fellowship, please visit www.nycteachingfellows.org or contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718.935.4101.
