Do you know a current classroom teacher who is passionate both about teaching and about shaping the teaching profession to improve results for urban students?
The Teaching Policy Fellowship engages excellent early-career teachers (who have completed 2-10 years of teaching) to work on issues related to the future of the teaching profession. The Fellowship is rigorous and selective, admitting only 25-30 teachers per city for the year and a half program. While continuing to teach full time, Teaching Policy Fellows meet monthly to interact directly with education policy leaders and research experts, analyze policy, study innovative practices, and advocate for reforms that would retain them in the profession. To learn more about the Fellowship, visit our Fellowship Program page.
Anyone can nominate an eligible teacher for the Teaching Policy Fellowship. We rely on principals, central office staff, nonprofit organizations, and community members to connect teachers to this unique opportunity. Teach Plus will contact nominated teachers to invite them to apply to the Fellowship. Nominees are not required to apply nor are they guaranteed acceptance.
