Why City Year loves New Teachers Collaborative

Grounded in teacher collaboration and reflective practice, New Teachers Collaborative is an approved Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education teacher preparation program that culminates in initial licensure. From the very first day, you are a professional, working alongside experienced teachers to develop your practice by engaging in relevant experiences with real students. Candidates enter the program from undergraduate preparation, a gap year or other careers. Your cohort meets one Wednesday and two Tuesday afternoons/evenings a month in seminars around relevant issues in teaching and learning that are immediately applicable in the classroom.

New Teachers Collaborative provides a rich opportunity for aspiring educators to learn to teach by teaching in small, progressive middle and high schools that foster deep understanding. Through strong program faculty, experienced colleagues, consistent feedback and close mentoring, you will engage with teams of teachers in professional collaborative inquiry around instruction, curriculum and assessment. The City Year experience is a strong indicator of future success at New Teachers Collaborative, and serving with City Year strengthens an applicant’s chances of being selected as a teacher intern.
