Teaching Fellows are accomplished professionals and recent graduates who
commit to becoming exceptional teachers in our most disadvantaged
communities. Our teachers develop the skills to help students build their
knowledge by making meaningful connections between challenging, meaningful
content and students’ unique values and experiences.
Who We Want
We believe teaching is an honor and a privilege, which is why we hold the
highest standards of any training program in America. We look for
accomplished individuals who possess the skills and deep content knowledge
to teach critical subjects where great teachers are often in short supply,
like science, math, and special education.
We are particularly interested in candidates with the dedication and
knowledge required to teach high-need STEM subjects, including math,
chemistry, physics, and biology.
You may have built a successful career in healthcare, finance or
engineering, and now wish to give back as a teacher. Or you could be a
recent graduate who wants to share a passion for mathematics, computer
science or physics with students. Whatever your background, you believe
that every student can excel in math and science and you will do whatever
it takes to help them get there.
Benefits of TNTP Teaching Fellows
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
