Become a T3 Teacher Leader
Are you an experienced, highly effective teacher in search of your next professional challenge? Are you looking to work in collaboration with a team of like-minded peers to eliminate the achievement gap? Are you interested in leading school reform while continuing to serve students where they need you the most—at the front of their classroom?
As a T3 Teacher Leader, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with a team of high-performing, dedicated teachers. You will be trained as a cohort in strategies that have been used by other highly effective teacher teams. You’ll be part of a broader improvement strategy in a school that supports quality teaching and teacher leadership. You’ll be able to take on leadership roles without leaving the classroom. The T3 Initiative offers a path toward mastery in urban teaching and in teacher leadership.
All applicants must have a minimum of three years of teaching experience in a high-poverty or high-needs school, as well as a track record of effective classroom instruction. Throughout the application process, applicants must demonstrate the possession of critical skills and competencies that are required for effective school leadership in under-performing urban schools.
T3 is currently partnered with eight chronically low performing schools in Boston, two schools one school in Fall River, Massachusetts, one school in western Massachusetts, and three schools in Washington, D.C. For the 2014-2015 school year, T3 will continue its partnership in Boston and Fall River, and will expand to Holyoke, MA and two additional schools in Washington D.C T3 is also expanding to three elementary schools in Indianapolis, Indiana.
