We also have our teaching fellows program!
Teaching Fellows are aspiring teachers who are committed to learning the craft of teaching through professional development, coaching, and hands-on practice in KIPP: Massachusetts Schools. KIPP: Massachusetts Teaching Fellows spend each day teaching and learning alongside an experienced Lead Teacher, with the goal of becoming a KIPP: Massachusetts Lead Teacher in the next 1-2 years. For the 2016 – 2017 school year we are excited to welcome Elementary Fellows into our Kindergarten, First, and Second grade classrooms as well as Middle and High School Fellows in English Language Arts, Math, and Science classrooms.
