The Teaching Fellows program is specifically designed to provide training and support to individuals who have had limited education coursework or experience. There are other, more appropriate paths to employment in New York City for certified teachers and individuals who have completed teacher education programs. These paths offer financial assistance to help pay for Master's degree tuition or outstanding loans. For more information about these incentives and how to apply for a position, please refer to the Department of Education's recruitment website or call 1-800-TeachNYC.
