Join a network of over 9,000 educators committed to creating a better future for the NYC students that need them most. What is NYC Teaching Fellows? The NYC Teaching Fellows is preparing a critical mass of exceptional teachers committed to a better future for NYC students. This means our teachers go where they're needed the most - they teach in low income communities and at schools with high populations of students with disabilities or English language learners because we know that when there are strong leaders are in the classroom, all students - no matter their circumstances - have the opportunity to achieve and succeed. Fellows who successfully complete our rigorous training program become full-time teachers within a few months of enrolling. They participate in an innovative, practice-based summer training program and then earn a subsidized master's degree in education while teaching in a New York City public school. Fellows train to teach in subject areas including math, science, English as a second language, special education, bilingual education, Spanish, and English language arts. Why Become a NYC Teaching Fellow? There are over 1 million public school students in NYC. 80% are low-income students, 11% are English language learners, and more than 17% are students that require additional assistance. This equates to hundreds of thousands of students that need strong leaders in the classroom to raise their achievement level. "Every kid needs a chance to succeed and be challenged. NYC Teaching Fellows gives you the opportunity to change lives. We're doing something important here, with urgency. We're closing the achievement gap. If you want to make our society better, it starts in the classroom. You can do something about it." - Travis Brown, 2004 math Fellow and founding principal of The Urban Assembly Institute for New Technologies Who We Look For There is no one profile of an ideal candidate.

Whatever your background, you believe that every student can achieve at a high-level and will do whatever it takes to help them get there. We look for candidates who: Believe in social justice.They want to address and rectify the inequalities plaguing their communities.
