“Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
Dear Community Leader,
African-American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American children are 3x as likely to grow up in low-income areas, typically with the least access to high-quality instruction.
Be a part of the solution to change this reality.
In recognition of the upcoming MLK holiday, please share the Arizona Teaching Fellows program with others who have the potential to become exceptional educators in high-needs classrooms. Arizona Teaching Fellows is a program of TNTP (www.tntp.org) a national nonprofit committed to ending the injustice of educational inequality. The Teaching Fellows program recruits, selects, trains, and certifies talented career changers and achievement oriented recent college graduates to teach in high needs schools in the urban districts of Phoenix, Arizona - the tribal communities of Page, Holbrook, and Sanders Arizona - and the southwest border schools of Yuma, Arizona.
