Every student in New York City deserves an excellent teacher.

Become a Bilingual Education in Russian Teacher

This year, we are looking for applicants who are fully bilingual in Russian and English to become Fellows and teach Bilingual Education in Russian in our schools.

NYC Teaching Fellows Training

The NYC Teaching Fellows provides aspiring teachers the opportunity to train full-time in a New York City public school for 6-7 weeks before becoming full-time teachers. During this summer pre-service training period, participants develop their teaching skills through hands-on experiences and 1:1 coaching with skilled Coaches and program staff.

Following summer training, program participants begin teaching full-time as salaried teachers in a New York City school. During the first 2-3 years of teaching, participants work towards earning their master's degree and applying for their initial New York State teacher certification to continue their career as New York City teachers.

Our 2023 cohort of Fellows will have the opportunity to train to teach subjects based on their experience and qualifications. These include math, science (biology, chemistry, earth science, physics), Bilingual Spanish, Spanish language, Mandarin, Russian, and special education.
