Teaching residency

  • Immersive classroom practice: Most other teacher preparation programs leave little time for hands-on skill building. TNTP’s innovative training emphasizes actual teaching experience and focused practice on the core skills you’ll need to help make challenging content relevant and engaging for all your students.
  • Expert coaching: From summer training through your first year on the job, TNTP’s coaches—experienced teachers with a proven record in the classroom⁠—will provide constructive feedback to help you grow quickly. They’ll observe your teaching regularly, either through classroom visits or videos you record, and give you concrete strategies to apply in future lessons.
  • Personalized training: TNTP sets clear expectations and continually assesses your progress as a new teacher⁠—celebrating your successes, identifying growth areas and customizing coursework. Whether you’re struggling with lesson planning or striving to improve your classroom management skills, TNTP tailors its support and training to help you quickly get up to speed.
  • Expedited application process: City Year AmeriCorps members and alums who apply for one of TNTP’s Teaching Fellows program will be eligible for a priority application process.

Why City Year loves TNTP Teaching Fellows

TNTP’s Teaching Fellows transforms talented people into great teachers for students in systemically under-resourced communities. Operating six Fellows programs nationwide, TNTP holds the highest standards for effective teaching of any teacher preparation program in America. Fellows come from all walks of life and learn to teach critical subjects such as math, science and special education through innovative, practice-based training and coaching. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected for TNTP’s Teaching Fellows programs.

To apply

Apply online and learn more about TNTP’s selection process. Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis, so applying early could increase your chance of admission.

Please compare the start date for the Teaching Fellows program(s) in which you are interested to your City Year graduation date. AmeriCorps members should avoid applying to Teaching Fellows programs and locations 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.
