Milwaukee Teaching Fellows seeks outstanding professionals and recent graduates to make a difference in the lives of the students who most need you. This highly-selective program is designed to recruit and train socially-driven individuals, like you, who want to make a difference in the Milwaukee community by becoming teachers in some of our highest-need public schools. The Teaching Fellows program will offer over 50 new teachers this year the opportunity to join this selective accelerated route into the classroom. We are looking for outstanding candidates to teach math, science, special education, and bilingual education in Milwaukee Public Schools.
Candidates will benefit from a streamlined application and selection process and, if selected, will have the opportunity to participate in an intensive Training Institute in summer 2008 before entering their classrooms as full-time teachers in the fall. Fellows will pursue their teaching license while teaching full-time, and it is likely that most first year Fellows will be eligible for an AmeriCorps Education Award that will help defer the cost of licensure coursework. Fellows will receive a full-time teachers’ salary once they begin teaching in the fall.
There is no one profile of an ideal Milwaukee Teaching Fellows candidate. Fellows may be fresh out of college and ready to leverage their academic success into a teaching career. Fellows may be professionals with years of experience in the business or non-profit world who are ready to change careers to make an impact where they are most needed. As a Fellow, you will become part of a dynamic and dedicated network of new educational leaders, working with other progressive educators in Milwaukee to raise academic achievement in Milwaukee Public Schools...starting in your classroom.
Milwaukee Teaching Fellows will form a dedicated cohort of new teachers with a shared mission of closing the achievement gap in Milwaukee. The first year for any new teacher is challenging, and Fellows should anticipate an intense effort, especially at the beginning of the year. A full teaching day is just under seven hours, from start to finish. Beyond the formal school day, Fellows should expect to spend substantial time out of class preparing lessons, grading student work, and communicating with parents and guardians. They may have after-school meetings with school staff, their grade-level or subject team, or students’ family members. Fellows will also attend courses as they pursue their teaching license, as well as professional development activities to support their classroom efforts.
Milwaukee Teaching Fellows understand that their hard work can make a difference in the lives and academic achievement of Milwaukee’s children.
