Change the Lives of Thousands While Changing Your Own.
Join Urban Teachers in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., or Dallas/Fort Worth
Urban Teachers, an AmeriCorps Affiliate program and graduate school collaborator of Johns Hopkins University School of Education, is transforming the way people are prepared for a career in teaching. Through hands-on training, coaching and peer supports, we give teachers the skills they need to improve outcomes for students in high-need communities. By doing so, our teachers are changing the lives of the students, families and communities they serve, as well their own.
Urban Teachers is now taking applications for our Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Dallas/Fort Worth Corps for the 2017-18 school year, with placement in mid- to late June 2017. Our recruitment process is selective. While there is no restriction on undergraduate or graduate major, we look for applicants who have exhibited academic excellence by maintaining a preferred 3.0 GPA or higher, who gravitate to big challenges and have experience working with children. Urban Teachers participants are part of an unprecedented commitment to student performance: only those who demonstrate effective teaching practice, student learning gains and growth mindset/professionalism are recommended for certification (general and special education) and complete the full four-year program.
