About Nevada Teacher Corps
Nevada Teacher Corps partners with district and charter schools in the Las Vegas Valley to match program enrollees to teaching vacancies in high-need elementary education teaching positions as provisionally licensed educators. As participants in the 2-year program, Fellows teach as they learn, completing standard licensure coursework and engaging in monthly professional learning directly applicable to their classroom experience. This takes place in a supportive professional learning community with the support of program coaches and colleagues as well as school-based instructional support staff.
The 2024-25 Nevada Teacher Corps application is opening soon!
