Program Overview

Become a great teacher with teachNOLA, which provides an accelerated

will do whatever it takes to help them get there.

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

Benefits of Teaching in New Orleans

“teachNOLA is definitely the best program out there. From day one, I
had the skills to set the right tone and the expectation that we we’re
going to achieve great things. I love when my coach comes to my
classroom. He models, I practice, and we bounce feedback off each other
in real time.” –

Randy Edwards, 2012 teachNOLA Fellow

Innovative School Structure:
New Orleans is the first city in the country where most students attend
charter schools, so Teaching Fellows can find their fit by choosing from
among dozens of high-performing charters. Fellows teach in Greater New

Classroom-Centered Training:
Our training is radically simple: focused practice on key skills,
knowledge, and mindsets to get new teachers off to a strong start. Where
traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on
skill-building, our innovative training is centered around actual teaching
experience and focused practice on core skills, such as reflecting on
students’ values, experiences, and ambitions to create opportunities for
students to see themselves in challenging content that will prepare them
for success.

Licensure that Counts:
We hold the highest standards for licensure of any program in the country.
Upon graduating our program, teachNOLA Fellows are recognized not simply as
licensed teachers, but as having a proven track record of classroom

Full Salary and Benefits:
Teaching Fellows will start earning a full teacher’s salary plus
comprehensive benefits while pursuing licensure when they begin working
full-time at a district or charter school this fall.
