teachNOLA offers City Year alums

Teaching residency

teachNOLA’s training for Teaching Fellows gets new teachers off to a strong start by emphasizing intensive classroom practice centered around teaching experience and focused practice on core skills, such as creating a positive classroom culture and delivering content clearly; expert coaching beginning in summer training and continuing throughout your first year to gain constructive feedback that helps you grow quickly; and personalized training that identifies areas of growth and customizes coursework to address those needs.

teachNOLA Teaching Fellows will also receive the following benefits:

  • competitive first-year salary (ranging from $38,000 to $45,000)
  • comprehensive coverage, including medical, dental, vision and life insurance
  • teaching certification from TNTP Academy
  • reduced tuition for an online Master of Science in education degree from Johns Hopkins University
  • access to a supportive network of more than 33,000 alums

Why City Year loves teachNOLA

teachNOLA is an alternative teaching certification program offered through TNTP Teaching Fellows, which recruits and trains talented career changers and recent college graduates to be outstanding teachers in systemically under-resourced schools across the country. teachNOLA Fellows join a network of dynamic teachers who are building a new school system from the ground up in Louisiana, a hotbed of educational innovation. The program is run by TNTP, a national nonprofit organization working to end educational inequality, in partnership with leading public school systems and states, and more than 35,000 Teaching Fellows have been trained to date. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected as a teachNOLA Teaching Fellow.

To apply

Learn more about teachNOLA’s selection process and apply online.

Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis, so apply early to increase your chance of admission.

Please compare the start date for teachNOLA to your City Year graduation date. City Year AmeriCorps members should avoid applying to teachNOLA with a conflict, since being accepted into a program that starts before your City Year graduation would end your term of service with City Year, which could have implications such as losing benefits available to you as a City Year alum.

To identify your City Year affiliation

All applicants are asked to note if they are a City Year AmeriCorps member or alum on the online application.
