Indianapolis Teaching Fellows provides an accelerated pathway into teaching for accomplished professionals and recent college graduates who aren’t yet certified as educators, but who possess the dedication and content knowledge to teach in some of the highest-need schools throughout Indianapolis.
You may have built a successful career, and now wish to give back as a teacher. You could be an accomplished recent graduate who now wants to share your passion for learning with Indiana’s students. Whatever your background, you believe that every student can achieve at a high-level and will do whatever it takes to help them get there.

Benefits of Teaching in Indianapolis
“Indianapolis Teaching Fellows is really focused on results. That’s clear from the first day of training. There are high standards, but the benefit is that the people who make it through are aligned to one mission so we can collaborate to improve education for all students.” – Emily Willis, 2011 Indianapolis Teaching Fellow
Flexible Teaching Locations: With more than 30 school district and charter partners in greater Indianapolis, Fellows have unique flexibility to find a school that fits their skills and interests. Wherever you teach, you will be working in a state that is recognized for being on the cutting edge of education reform.
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.
Certification that Counts: We hold the highest standards for certification of any program in the country. Upon graduating our program, Indianapolis Teaching Fellows are recognized not simply as certified teachers, but as having a proven track record of classroom success.
Full Salary and Benefits: While pursuing certification, Teaching Fellows work full-time at a district or charter school and earn a full teacher’s salary plus comprehensive benefits.
Indianapolis Teaching Fellows is part of TNTP’s national network of Teaching Fellows programs. Though our programs share a common mission, they are as unique as the communities they serve.
