The Inspired Teacher Certification Program is a 24-month program, thoughtfully structured to support the preparation and development of new teachers.
Through intentionally sequenced graduate coursework and practical learning experiences, Fellows are immersed in instructional best-practices that result in student-centered, data-driven classrooms. Introduced to Inspired Teaching through a summer experience, Fellows then complete a residency year and summer teaching practicum where they develop the skills and dispositions necessary for a successful fellowship year and career as an educator.
Inspired Teaching Fellows are selected through a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify exceptional Fellows committed to a career in teaching.
A three and a half week introduction to Inspired Teaching designed to jumpstart Fellows’ thinking about teaching and learning.
Alongside a lead teacher, Fellows gradually take on the responsibilities associated with being a classroom teacher while engaging in graduate coursework toward an MAT.
Fellows demonstrate their residency year learnings by teaching summer school classes that result in student-centered, data-driven classrooms.
Supported by intensive mentoring, Fellows, as teachers of record, synthesize and implement lessons learned to create classrooms grounded in sound instructional decisions and strong relationships with students.
- With a minimum teaching commitment of two years beyond program completion, alumni work as educational changemakers – influencing the landscape of public education.
