Thank you for your interest in Center for Inspired Teaching!
For 21 years, Center for Inspired Teaching has been engaging teachers as partners in education reform through our groundbreaking, innovative approach to teacher training. Inspired Teaching is now preparing to exponentially expand our impact – through training teachers in new districts across the United States, building an online community of practice, and contributing to the national dialogue about teaching and learning. We are seeking a talented, detail-oriented individual with strong writing skills for the position of Development Associate and Grant Writer at this key inflection point in our organizational history. This individual will work in close partnership with the Director of Development & Strategic Partnerships, the Executive Director, and staff to sustain and increase funding to support the programmatic needs at Inspired Teaching.

Inspired Teaching is seeking a Teaching & Learning intern to support the Inspired Teacher Certification Program. Interns are key members of Inspired Teaching and this internship provides an abundance of opportunities for learning-by-doing. Interns interface with teachers, school leaders, community partners, stakeholders, and students. Interns work with a team of professionals experienced in education, successful program implementation, communication, development, research, and providing teachers with the skills that will help them succeed. This position has the possibility of extension into the summer to support the successful implementation of the Summer Experiences for the Inspired Teaching Fellows. Read the complete position description here.
The Inspired Teacher Certification Program is rooted in the belief that teachers can be changemakers in their classrooms, schools, and society as a whole. With the right training and commitment, educators have the power to ultimately change schools in our country, ensuring that all children reach their full potential and benefit from engaged-based and student-centered instruction.
Through a year-long residency, Inspired Teaching Fellows learn the skills and dispositions of an Inspired Teacher under the guidance of a lead teacher, arming them with the knowledge and experience necessary for a smooth transition into their teaching career. In their second year, as teachers of record in District of Columbia public schools, Fellows continue to receive intensive classroom mentoring. Fellows pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching at Trinity Washington University during both years of the program. Apply here.
