|Career Partnership with Michigan Teacher Corps|
City Year is proud to partner with the Michigan Teacher Corps, a program of TNTP, so our alumni can continue to make a difference in classrooms and in the lives of students. 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, increasing their chances for being selected into the Michigan Teacher Corps.
Training from one of the nation’s leading teacher preparation programs, TNTP Teaching Fellows.
-Become a Great New Teacher: MTC’s radically simple training hones in on key skills new teachers need to get off to a strong start. MTC emphasizes intensive classroom practice of teaching essentials, such as creating a positive classroom culture and delivering content clearly. You will train like a professional athlete, with plenty of opportunity to practice, reflect and improve.
-Earn Certification That Counts: Throughout your summer training and first year in the classroom, MTC carefully assesses and supports your growth, with expert coaching and personalized support. MTC awards 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.
-Join a Network of Passionate Educators: MTC ise training a generation of great teachers who believe that change starts in the classroom. Our programs aren’t for everyone. We believe teaching is a privilege and we hold the highest standards of any training program in America. But those who rise to meet them join an elite group of educators who are proving what’s possible in Detroit’s schools.
Teach Where You’re Needed Most: We are committed to serving low-performing partner districts in Detroit, where too many children start school behind and struggle to catch up.
Start Date for Michigan Teacher Corps’ Summer Training is June 27 (tentative).
