Teaching Fellow

Teaching Fellow (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

ProsYou get to start teaching right away.

ConsThey bombard you with extra work. Being a first year teacher is stressful, but to have them load you up with additional work adds to the stress level. They advertise as free but you really have to take out a loan and pay $6k+ then after you complete the program you get Americorp money. What they do not tell you is that if you work at a title 1 funded school you can get Americorp money either way. The only reason I am jumping through so many hoops for them is because I already paid the 6k and if I don't do what they want I won't pass the program and I lose my Americorp money.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive your fellows resources, don't just add to their workload. Be upfront about the cost, don't use the Americorp as a carrot to get what you want from the fellows. Many fellows feel this way but are afraid to say it, in fear of getting kicked out and losing out on the Americorp money.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
