Middle School Spring Classroom Apprenticeship
The Middle School Spring Classroom Apprenticeship (MS-SCA) is specifically designed for college and university students and recent graduates with a passion for making a positive impact in New York City’s public middle schools. In addition to 10 weeks of classroom immersion with a rigorously selected Cooperating Teacher, apprentices will also attend weekly supplemental workshops in which they will learn specific strategies to be effective in a high-needs middle school. Pending satisfactory completion of the program, participants will also be admitted as members of TeachNYC Select Recruits and will be given early consideration to positions in their host school for the 2013 – 2014 school year as opportunities arise.
