You might be a native Spanish speaker who now wishes to give back as a teacher. You could be an accomplished recent graduate who majored in Spanish or developed fluency while studying abroad who now wants to share your expertise with bilingual students. Whatever your background, you believe that every student can excel and will do whatever it takes to help them get there.
Our formula for success: aim high, train hard, and transform lives teaching in a community where you choose to build your career in education.
Teaching Fellows are accomplished professionals and recent graduates who commit to becoming exceptional teachers in our most disadvantaged communities. With hands-on training, Teaching Fellows develop the skills to hit the ground running on day one and continue improving for years to come. We seek outstanding candidates who are fluent in Spanish and want to apply that talent as bilingual, ESL or Spanish teachers in high-need middle school or high school classrooms.
Apply by November 11 to join the ranks of this elite group of educators.
Who We Want
"I had two students who started the year not speaking a word of English. It was tremendously rewarding to help them progress – seeing them first begin to express themselves a little, eventually seeing them develop into huge participants in the classroom." – TNTP Teaching Fellow
Our teachers are committed to excellence – from their students and from themselves. We look for accomplished individuals who aren’t yet certified as educators, but who possess the skills and deep content knowledge to teach critical subjects where great teachers are often in short supply, like science, math, special education and bilingual education.
Our programs aren’t for everyone. We believe teaching is an honor and a privilege, which is why we hold the highest standards of any training program in America. We only accept applicants who have what it takes to become great teachers. In 2013, only 8 percent of all applicants successfully met our standards for admission, training, and entry into the classroom. But those who rise to meet these standards join an elite group of educators, nearly 32,000 strong. Together they are proving the transformative power of great teaching.
Successful Teaching Fellows:
• Take ownership. They embrace their responsibility to ensure that every last student excels academically.
• Crave feedback. They seek out and welcome advice from instructors, coaches, and peers.
• Commit to practice. They take an active role in their own growth, and work deliberately to perfect new teaching techniques.
• Embrace challenges. They meet the realities of a high-need school with determination, optimism, and thoughtful solutions.
• Connect with students. They motivate and challenge young people, inspiring achievement and a real love of learning.
Benefits of TNTP Teaching Fellows
Classroom-Centered Training: Our training is radically simple: focused practice on key skills to get new teachers off to a strong start. With intensive summer training and ongoing coaching from experienced teachers that lasts throughout the first year in the classroom, Teaching Fellows practice, reflect, and improve until they master the craft of great teaching.
Flexible Teaching Locations: With programs operating in more than a dozen U.S. cities, Teaching Fellows can choose to teach and live in a city that fits their interests. Though our programs share a common mission, they are as unique as the communities they serve.
Certification that Counts: We hold the highest standards for certification of any program in the country. Upon graduating our programs, 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, starting at $30,000-60,000, plus comprehensive benefits.

• Must have bachelor’s degree by spring 2014
• Must be authorized to work in the U.S.
• Must be able to pass an FBI background investigation
