Benefits of Nevada Teacher Corps

As an international destination, Las Vegas is rich in diversity. Nevada
works across every level of our education system. We collaborate with the
state department of education, individual schools, and with teachers,
leaders, and community members at schools across Nevada.

Classroom-Centered training:
Our training is radically simple: focused practice on key skills,
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:
Throughout your summer training and first year in the classroom, we
carefully assess and support your growth, with expert coaching and
personalized support. We award certification only to new teachers who
demonstrate mastery of instructional skills and a consistent ability to
help their students learn and thrive. It's a high bar--and an honor.

Full Salary and Benefits:
NTC Fellows will begin earning a full teacher's salary plus comprehensive
benefits while pursuing certification when they start working full-time at
a school this fall.
