Title  teachNOLA Teaching Fellow
Description  Become a great teacher with teachNOLA, which provides an accelerated pathway into teaching for accomplished professionals and recent
college graduates who aren??t yet licensed as educators, but who possess the dedication and content knowledge to teach in some of
the highest-need schools in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Great teachers have a huge and lasting impact on students?? lives, and students grappling with the challenges of poverty need great
teachers most. That??s why our program is so selective ??in 2013, only 8% of applicants successfully met our standards for
admission, training and entry into the classroom.

You may have built a successful career, and now wish to give back as a teacher. You could be an accomplished recent graduate who now
wants to share your passion for learning with New Orleans?? students. Whatever your background, you believe that every student can
achieve at a high-level and will do whatever it takes to help them get there.

We are currently seeking outstanding candidates to teach critical-need subjects, including science, math, English, Spanish, early
childhood education and special education.

Successful Fellows:

? Take ownership. Fellows believe that every single student can excel academically, and they have the responsibility to get
students there.
? Crave feedback. They seek out and welcome advice from instructors, coaches and peers.
? Commit to practice. They work deliberately to perfect new techniques that will improve their teaching.
? Embrace challenges. They meet the daily challenges of teaching in a high-need school with determination and optimism.
? Share their passions. They use their deep subject knowledge to ignite student interest, inspiring achievement and a real
love of learning.
