KIPP New York

Posted on August 9, 2016

To provide support for the Program Director spearheading the KIPP NYC Empire Teaching Fellows Program which provides aspiring teachers with no formal teaching experience the unique opportunity to enter the teaching profession through a high-quality, one-year, training program at a KIPP NYC School. Program participants are paired with a high-performing KIPP teacher who serves as a coach and mentor for the entire school year. The program was created to expand their recruitment pool and create leadership opportunities for their emerging teacher leaders who serve as mentor teachers (Resident Advisors), gaining invaluable coaching and supervisor skills, and build “bench depth.” Upon completion of the 12-month program, each Fellow will be a competitive applicant for a full-time teaching position at KIPP NYC.
