Instructional Support Summer Teacher Coach
WHO WE ARE
Generation Teach is led by a national team of educators, driven by five core values – belonging, investment, initiative, growth, and excellence. We partner with communities to build local, diverse pipelines of exemplary educators who reflect the students and communities we serve. We recruit, train, and empower professional teachers to invest in their next generation of colleagues by coaching, mentoring, and supporting undergraduate and high-school students who are exploring careers in education as summer teaching fellows.
On average, our summer teaching fellows are:
- 75% people of color
- 60% Black and/or Latinx
- 75% local – they grew up or attend college in our communities
- 40% First Gen
We are committed to investing a new generation of prospective teachers in our most important profession. Every year, we learn with and from our fellows, professional teachers, and students. Learn and grow with us this summer!
