Nashville Teaching Fellows is now accepting applications for the 2012-13 school year. This project recruits recent college graduates and outstanding professionals to bring their knowledge into the classroom. Those selected will train in a intensive summer training program, and then pursue a teaching license during their first years in the classroom.
What is Nashville Teaching Fellows?The Nashville Teaching Fellows program is an initiative of Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) which recruits, selects, and trains high-achieving individuals from all backgrounds to teach in critical shortage subject areas and schools. It seeks to close the achievement gap in Nashville’s schools and ensure that every child, regardless of background, has excellent teachers.
Nashville Teaching Fellows (NTF) is unique because it seeks candidates who want to make a long-term career change to teaching. We help Fellows achieve that goal by providing intense pre-service training, and by working with them to find full-time teaching positions in MNPS. NTF is different from other alternative route licensure programs because Fellows teach full time in their own classroom and earn salary and benefits as full time MNPS employees while they are also taking evening classes offered by NTF to pursue their Tennessee teaching license.
Who is Nashville Teaching Fellows looking for?
We are looking for applicants who realize that one teacher's influence can change the possibilities for numerous students. We want people who are leaders in their community and who possess the commitment, flexibility, and drive necessary to achieve success in the classroom. We want professionals, recent college graduates, parents, and individuals who want to be the difference in Nashville’s schools. There is no specific type of applicant that NTF is looking for, but we want candidates who will use their experience and energy to ensure that all of our students excel academically.
Previous coursework in education is not required, but candidates must:
