Pre-Service Training Instructors- Indianapolis Teaching Fellows
Seeking Passionate Instructional Leaders!
TNTP seeks summer Pre-Service Training Instructors for Indianapolis Teaching Fellows. This position is based in Indianapolis and is available in Summer 2018.
Who We Are
TNTP is a national nonprofit founded by teachers that believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. Today we’re a diverse team from a wide range of fields, united by a fierce commitment to helping school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.
TNTP’s Indianapolis Teaching Fellows Program is an alternative route to a career in teaching for talented professionals committed to improving the odds for kids by raising student achievement. This unique partnership with Marian University, has placed more than 400 teachers in the classroom across the city of Indianapolis. More than 10 of these Fellows have been named the Teacher of the Year in their school or network.
Indianapolis Teaching Fellows prepares Fellows to achieve immediate, measurable success with their students in the fall. Our training approach, called Fast Start, focuses on foundational skills that we believe Fellows must have to ensure a strong start to the school year as a new teacher. During their pre-service training, Fellows rehearse the foundational skills, receive coaching, and practice them with students. Fellows must demonstrate proficiency in these skills to successfully complete pre-service training and become a teacher of record in the fall.
What You’ll Do
Instructors lead skill-building sessions focused on the foundational skills of pre-service training, ensuring Fellows have high quality opportunities to both learn and practice the skills. In addition, Instructors design and facilitate sessions that support Fellows’ ability to plan and execute instruction.
Specific responsibilities include:
