          TNTP Teaching Fellows

          We prepare exceptional teachers for the students who need them most – those in our country’s most disadvantaged communities, where too many children start school behind and struggle to catch up.

          Our teachers acknowledge the immense challenges of poverty but reject its limitations. They believe that every lesson has the power to inspire, every hour in the classroom is precious, and every student has the potential to succeed. They know that having even one top teacher can shape students’ lives well into the future.

          It’s not easy to defy the odds, and great teaching doesn’t happen overnight. Our teachers develop the skills to hit the ground running on day one and have the passion to continue improving for years to come.

          Our programs aren’t for everyone. We believe teaching is a privilege and we hold the highest standards of any training program in America. But those who rise to meet them join an elite group of educators, more than 35,000 strong. Together they are proving the transformative power of great teaching, and proving what’s possible in public education. We call them Teaching Fellows.

              TNTP Teaching Fellows

              We prepare exceptional teachers for the students who need them most – those in our country’s most disadvantaged communities, where too many children start school behind and struggle to catch up.

              Our teachers acknowledge the immense challenges of poverty but reject its limitations. They believe that every lesson has the power to inspire, every hour in the classroom is precious, and every student has the potential to succeed. They know that having even one top teacher can shape students’ lives well into the future.

              It’s not easy to defy the odds, and great teaching doesn’t happen overnight. Our teachers develop the skills to hit the ground running on day one and have the passion to continue improving for years to come.

              Our programs aren’t for everyone. We believe teaching is a privilege and we hold the highest standards of any training program in America. But those who rise to meet them join an elite group of educators, more than 35,000 strong. Together they are proving the transformative power of great teaching, and proving what’s possible in public education. We call them Teaching Fellows.
