Becoming a great teacher takes years. Start this summer!
What is the Summer Teaching Fellowship?
The Summer Teaching Fellowship is an opportunity for recent high school graduates and current college students to spend a summer internship teaching students in grades K-8. Our Summer Teaching Fellows gain experience teaching in both small group and whole class environments, primarily to build reading, writing, and math skills.
Why might I be interested in the Summer Teaching Fellowship?
- You don’t yet know what you will do professionally, but you want to try teaching. The Summer Teaching Fellowship gives you an opportunity to develop your understanding of teaching and learning to see if it might be the profession for you.
- You want to do something with your summer that makes others’ lives better. Our scholars need targeted instruction and attention. Without it, they could slip further behind in their achievement levels this summer. Do you want to spend your time this summer doing something that will literally improve the lives of children?
- It’s not okay with you that summer opportunities are not equitable. Not all children have access to summer enrichment and academic programming. Especially those who really need it. If you are passionate about helping to close the achievement gap, this is the program for you.
- You are already working toward a career in education and are eager to receive feedback and coaching to become the teacher your students deserve. In the Summer Teaching Fellows program you will receive ongoing training, daily observations, and frequent feedback to improve your craft and become the teacher your future students deserve.
