|Career Partnership with Center for Inspired Teaching|
City Year is proud to partner with Center for Inspired Teaching so our alumni can continue to lead on transformational change on pressing social problems. This partnership reflects the shared visions and values of both organizations, and their belief that young people can keep students on track to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected for the Inspired Teacher Certification Program.
Through a residency model, Inspired Teaching Fellows are prepared for successful and sustainable careers as teachers and changemakers in Washington, DC while earning a DC teaching license and a Master of Arts in Teaching.
The Inspired Teacher Certification Program is rooted in the belief that teachers, as Instigators of Thoughttm, can be changemakers in their classrooms, schools, and society as a whole. Becoming a part of Inspired Teaching means joining a movement to change the way children are educated. Inspired Teaching believes that teachers will ultimately change schools in our country to ensure that all children reach their full potential.
Through a year-long residency, 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.
The City Year experience is a strong indicator of future success at the Inspired Teacher Certification Program and serving a year with City Year strengthens an applicant’s application and chances for being selected as an Inspire Teaching Fellow.
