Nevada Teacher Corps (NTC) is an ambitious, teacher-centered effort to invigorate struggling Nevada schools with great teaching and leadership. NTC builds a passionate group of like-minded teachers, and provides the training, coaching and leadership development they need to offer a transformative education for Nevada students.
NTC 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 Nevada’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.
Who We Want
We're looking for accomplished professionals and recent college graduates who possess the skills and deep content knowledge to teach critical subjects where great teachers are often in short supply, such as Elementary Education.
You may have built a successful career in finance, healthcare or the nonprofit sector and now wish to give back as a teacher. Or you could be a recent graduate who wants to share a passion for mathematics, biology or chemistry with students. Whatever your background, you believe all Nevada students deserve a great teacher and we'll give you the skills to become one.
We are currently seeking outstanding candidates to teach Elementary Education.
Benefits of Nevada Teacher Corps
Community-Focused: As an international destination, Las Vegas is rich in diversity. Nevada works across every level of our education system. We collaborate with the state department of education, individual schools, and with teachers, leaders, and community members at schools across Nevada.
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: Throughout your summer training and first year in the classroom, we carefully assess and support your growth, with expert coaching and personalized support. We award certification only to new teachers who demonstrate mastery of instructional skills and a consistent ability to help their students learn and thrive. It's a high bar--and an honor.
Full Salary and Benefits: NTC Fellows will begin earning a full teacher's salary plus comprehensive benefits while pursuing certification when they start working full-time at a school this fall.
Nevada Teacher Corps 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.
