Teach for a Just Future
Structural racism and inequality have kept generations of urban children from receiving the education they deserve. At Urban Teachers, they believe that qualified, highly effective teachers who stay in the classroom can empower students through learning. Their teachers develop the skills, hands-on experience and knowledge to ensure every child receives an equitable education.
Their program is intense. Their teachers receive a master’s degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Education, one of the top 10 graduate schools of education in the country,* and become dually certified to teach in either elementary education, secondary English or secondary math, and special education. They offer more comprehensive coursework and personalized support than any other teacher training program. In the first year, their participants take part in a residency as they work alongside an experienced teacher in an urban classroom while taking graduate courses after school. In the second year, their participants become fellows, moving into full-time, salaried teaching positions, while receiving expert coaching from their clinical faculty. That guidance and support continues for a third year, during which time, fellows develop their teaching practices to provide students with the support they need to thrive.
Urban Teachers has invited Middlebury Students to join a Virtual Information Session on Monday, February 11th at 7:00 pm.
In Baltimore, success as a teacher depends on your willingness to become immersed in a community, your commitment to becoming a culturally responsive educator and your ability to develop relationships with your diverse students and their families. Teachers change Baltimore through their impact on their students. They stay in the classroom for four years, help stabilize schools and become educational leaders in our communities. Join us for this info session to see if Baltimore could be the right move for you!
