CharterTeach Teaching Fellowship
- ATTENTION: LOOKING FOR OUTSTANDING, EXPERIENCED TEACHERS: If you have spent at least a year as a full-time classroom teacher, continue to put your talents to work for students in an autonomous public school serving a low-income, urban community. Apply for a CharterTeach Teaching Fellowship.
What CharterTeach does: CharterTeach identifies exceptional urban public charter schools and autonomous traditional district schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and then works in collaboration with these Partner Schools to award highly selective fellowships to outstanding, experienced teachers attracted to the innovation and promise of the education reform movement. CharterTeach Fellows join a network of outstanding, like-minded educators, receive a teaching position at a Partner School, and a Professional Development Scholarship of up to $5,000 over two years towards their professional development. Public schools in low-income, urban areas get the inspired teachers they need, and Fellows enjoy the exhilarating teaching environments they desire.
Why CharterTeach does it: Leaders with teaching experience are extremely valuable people, yet nearly 50% of all new teachers leave urban classrooms within three years. Furthermore, finding the right fit at the right school is far from easy. CharterTeach exists to help ensure the best and brightest teach in the communities where they are most needed.

Public schools in low-income, urban areas are in need of extraordinary teachers who will move kids forward from day one and will lead their community-centered efforts to build excellent schools. Will you be one of them?
