Think you have what it takes to teach for Metro Schools? If so, Nashville Teaching Fellows (NTF) is now accepting applications for the next cohort of professionals looking to make a career change. The deadline to apply is Feb. 21.
What is Nashville Teaching Fellows?
NTF is a highly-selective, innovative path for talented mid-career professionals and recent college graduates to become teachers and make a measurable difference in our most critical subject areas: math, science, ELL, and special education. There are Fellows working in more than half of the district’s schools already. The NTF program’s goal is to recruit, select, and train only the most outstanding candidates who have the potential to effectively increase student achievement in their classrooms.
Nashville Teaching Fellows:
• Participate in a rigorous summer pre-service training to develop their ability to increase student achievement as a new teacher in a high-need school;
• Achieve significant academic growth with all of their students and hold themselves accountable by measuring student outcomes in their classrooms; and
• Complete requirements during their first year teaching to earn their permanent Tennessee certification.
