Finding a Teaching Position
At the end of the summer training, all Roots LA Fellows will engage in a hiring process and commit to a teaching position for the Fall of 2020. TNTP will help you find a position that’s right for you, so that both you and your principal feel good about the match. Our staff will offer resources, support and guidance, but all hiring decisions are made by principals or other school-based administrators.
Roots LA will help you navigate the school hiring process by connecting you with our network of principals. Our team will host a hiring fair, set up mock-interviews, and provide résumé and cover letter support.
During your senior year, you will have multiple options to engage with your new school team before you begin teaching the following year, such as participating in school social events, volunteering in the classroom, meeting students, and more.
