During the first year of the four-year program, before you start teaching on your own, you’ll spend 1,500 hours working with students in urban classrooms. ·       During this time, you also begin graduate coursework for a Master of Science in Education degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Education—ranked #6 in the country. All coursework is clinically based, allowing for immediate practice of learned skills in the classroom and equipping you with a toolbox of proven strategies for working with all students. ·       Four (4) years of mentoring and support is tailored to your needs—from coaches and peers—and available longer than any other preparation program. This includes three (3) full years of one-on-one coaching to ensure you grow into an effective teacher. And, because Urban Teachers prepares you for the job from day-one, you'll be able to quickly grow into a teacher leader, providing support and guidance to your colleagues in your school and city.   Urban Teachers participants are part of an unprecedented commitment to student performance: only those who demonstrate an effective teaching practice, student learning gains and growth mindset/professionalism are recommended for certification (general and special education) and complete the full four-year program.     Who we Look for: We are now accepting applications for our Cohort 2018 with placement in mid- to late June 2018 in Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Dallas/Fort Worth. Our recruitment process is selective and performance-based. There is no restriction on undergraduate or graduate major, however, we do look for applicants who have demonstrated grit and commitment, knowledge of education equity, and are able to work in the U.S. on a permanent and ongoing basis without need for sponsorship now or in the future.     Participant Finances: During the first year, participants receive a stipend from Urban Teachers of at least $20,000.  The program tuition is $40,000 and there are many options for obtaining financial aid through Johns Hopkins University.   Starting the second year, participants are employed as the teacher of record and begin to receive full salary and benefit. Urban Teachers operates in cities with some of the highest starting teacher salaries in the nation and with opportunities for pay for performance (teachers that are effective improving student achievement are paid more).   Urban Teachers is a member of the AmeriCorps Affiliate program. This means that incoming residents may be eligible for up to two (2) Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards that can be used towards the costs of tuition for the master’s degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Education or to pay down prior student loans. This benefit is worth approximately $5,700 per year for a total of $11,000 over the first two years of the program. (Please note: each year the exact amount is set Oct. 1 for the following year and has not yet been confirmed for Cohort 2018).  See what others are saying about Urban Teachers at @Urban_Teachers and follow us on Facebook.
