ALTERNATIVE ROUTES TO BECOMING A TEACHER

If you're considering a career in teaching, many opportunities exist for you to gain experience immediately after graduation, even if you've never taken an education class. Many students have heard of Teach for America, the national corps of recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools, but there are other term-of-service opportunities that allow you to teach, such as:

Arizona Teaching Fellows
Virtual Information Session Thursday, March 10! Please visit http://arizona.teachertrack2.org/ to sign up for this event.

Arizona Teaching Fellows seeks outstanding professionals and recent college graduates who wish to build a career making a difference in the lives of Arizona’s children specifically in Phoenix, Tucson, and Yuma.

MATCH Teacher Residency, Boston
Gives recent college graduates one year of incredibly intense training designed to make them unusually effective rookie teachers. We then help them find positions in high-need schools, and continue to support them as they begin their careers in the classroom. Most graduates will go on to become English or math teachers in "No Excuses"-style urban Charter Public Schools (though we hope some go, in teams, to reform-minded principals in traditional high-poverty public schools). Upon graduation, residents commit to two years of full-time teaching in an urban public school

You can learn more about these and other programs that can lead to becoming a teacher on the Short-Term Opportunities page of the CCPD website!
