Teaching opportunity in Indianapolis after graduation!

Historically, high-need students in Indianapolis have not had equal access to an education that adequately prepares them for college and career. Indianapolis Teaching Fellows trains recent college graduates to become exceptional, certified teachers. Our fast-paced six-week summer training program focuses on the essential skills that teachers need most to start strong. Fellows will repeatedly practice foundational classroom management and instructional techniques, receive direct feedback from skilled coaches, and must pass a series of evaluations in order to be eligible to start teaching in the fall.

Apply here — applications are accepted on a rolling basis; the next deadline is December 11.
