Flexible Teaching Locations:
With more than 30 school district and charter partners in greater
Indianapolis, Fellows have unique flexibility to find a school that fits
their skills and interests. Wherever you teach, you will be working in a
state that is recognized for being on the cutting edge of education reform.

knowledge, and mindsets to get new teachers off to a strong start. Where
traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on
skill-building, our innovative training is centered around actual teaching
experience and focused practice on core skills, such as reflecting on
students’ values, experiences, and ambitions to create opportunities for
students to see themselves in challenging content that will prepare them
for success.

Certification that Counts:
We hold the highest standards for certification of any program in the
country. Upon graduating our program, Indianapolis Teaching Fellows are
recognized not simply as certified teachers, but as having a proven track
record of classroom success.

Full Salary and Benefits:
While pursuing certification, Teaching Fellows work full-time at a district
or charter school and earn a full teacher’s salary plus comprehensive
