Our Mission

Make Student Dreams a Reality

Highly effective teachers can transform students’ lives. We’re proud to help launch the careers of new teachers from diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to fighting for educational equity. Our Fellows embark on meaningful careers committed to inclusive teaching. They build strong relationships with their students, hold high expectations, and have the ability to make challenging content relevant and engaging—setting students on a long-term path to success. And, by creating accessible pathways to classrooms and careers, TNTP Teaching Fellows supports improving economic and social mobility for both teachers and students alike

Our Community

The Best of Both Worlds—the Power of Local Community Backed by a National Framework

Our program has trained over 38,000 diverse and talented teachers through 36 programs across 25 states, partnering with local school districts and charter organizations. Our programs are rooted in the local communities where we work. Our Fellows teach local students in local classrooms and learn from local teachers and leaders, while receiving training based on a national framework that has been proven effective for over 20 years. Our training model is both proven and innovative because we regularly review the latest data and feedback from students and teachers to refine our programming.
