Become a Great Teacher with Urban Teachers
Application Deadline: May 4
Webinar: April 27
There is no doubt that COVID-19 has led to unprecedented times--particularly in urban education. It has made vivid the inequalities that too many students and families face and how important schools are in serving as safety nets. Our teachers quickly adapted to this upside-down world as best they could with the skills they learned from Urban Teachers to help their students continue to learn but also be supported emotionally through technology, texts, phone calls and drivebys. Urban Teachers also made quick pivots to ensure our residents and fellows who are still taking our Johns Hopkins University School of Education master's coursework and receiving coaching could so from the safety of their homes, and we ensured that they received the support they needed to take care of themselves, too.
At Urban Teachers, our priority is the success of our teachers. This year our Summer Institute in DC, Dallas and Baltimore will be virtual June 22-July 24 launching with our graduate coursework. Check out a short video from one of our 1st year teachers Jazz Jordan in Baltimore HERE. We hope you will join teachers like Jazz and apply by our last app deadline May 4 .
Tell others in your network that might be interested, too!
We also want to invite you to a webinar April 27 at 6:30PM EST -- launching our Black Educators Initiative Speaker Series.
The Black Educators Initiative at Urban Teachers is a generational movement that aims to increase the number of Black teachers in Baltimore, Dallas and DC while simultaneously ensuring they are supported and embraced. With a generous philanthropic gift of $25 million from The Ballmer Group, Urban Teachers is poised to contribute to national racial equity discussions and action.
