  • Participate in fast-paced summer training at a local Las Vegas school to kick start your skills and prepare you for your first year of teaching. 

Academic Requirements

We will review your application carefully to confirm you have the right skills and expertise to teach in one of our partner schools. For the 2019-20 school year, NTC is recruiting elementary school teachers. Recruiting teachers to teach in K-5 general education classrooms allows us to provide NTC partner schools with the teachers they need the most, and also makes it easier for you to secure a job. 

To earn your elementary teaching license, you will need to meet the requirements below.
