TEACH Charlotte. Train to Become a Great ESL or Spanish Teacher in Charlotte

Posted By: TNTP Teaching Fellows
Date: Thursday, 5 December 2013, at 3:09 p.m.

We don’t train teachers—we train great teachers. Visit to learn how you can transform your academic background and professional experience into a high-impact career as a licensed teacher in Charlotte.

Why Join?

We seek outstanding candidates who are fluent in Spanish and want to apply that talent by working as ESL or Spanish teachers in Charlotte.

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.

Program Overview

TEACH Charlotte provides an accelerated pathway into teaching for accomplished professionals and recent college graduates who aren’t yet licensed as educators, but who possess the dedication and content knowledge to teach in some of Charlotte’s highest-need schools.

Great teachers have a huge and lasting impact on students’ lives, and students grappling with the challenges of poverty need great teachers most. That’s why our program is so selective –in 2013, only 8% of applicants successfully met our standards for admission, training and entry into the classroom.

We are currently seeking outstanding candidates to teach critical-need subjects, including science, math, middle school, English, Spanish, English as a Second Language (ESL) and exceptional children (special education).

Successful Fellows:

• Take ownership. Fellows believe that every single student can excel academically, and they have the responsibility to get students there.

• Crave feedback. They seek out and welcome advice from instructors, coaches and peers.

• Commit to practice. They work deliberately to perfect new techniques that will improve their teaching.

• Embrace challenges. They meet the daily challenges of teaching in a high-need school with determination and optimism.

• Share their passions. They use their deep subject knowledge to ignite student interest, inspiring achievement and a real love of learning.

Benefits of Teaching in Charlotte

“With TEACH Charlotte, the requirements and expectations are high, and you are moving at such a quick pace; that appealed to me. But you also always have someone next to you in the trenches, helping you figure things out. That’s what makes TEACH Charlotte really exceptional.” – Natoya Dingle, 2012 TEACH Charlotte Participant

A Leading District: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Schools, home to 9,000 teachers across 159 schools, has been cited by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a “model of innovation in urban education.” In 2011, it earned the prestigious Broad Prize for “empowering teachers and creatively supporting the most challenged schools."

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 continues throughout the first year in the classroom, Teaching Fellows practice, reflect, and improve until they master the craft of great teaching.

Licensure that Counts: We hold the highest standards for licensure of any program in the country. TEACH Charlotte graduates are recognized not simply as licensed teachers, but as having a proven track record of classroom success.

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