Become A Teacher
You believe all Nevada students deserve a great teacher. We give you the skills to become one, with training from one of the nation’s leading teacher preparation programs, TNTP Teaching Fellows. We hold the highest standards of any training program in America: Those who meet our high bar for licensure join an elite group of educators from across the country who are proving what’s possible in education.
Nevada Teacher Corps (NTC) Fellows complete an intensive summer training and engage with coursework and coaching throughout their first year in the classroom, culminating in licensure for Fellows who master core skills and show success with their students.
Become a Great New Teacher
Our radically simple training hones in on key skills new teachers need to get off to a strong start. We emphasize intensive classroom practice of teaching essentials, such as creating a positive classroom culture and delivering content clearly. You will train like a professional athlete, with plenty of opportunity to practice, reflect and improve.
Earn Licensure that Counts
Throughout your summer training and first year in the classroom, we carefully assess and support your growth, with expert coaching and personalized support. We award licensure only to new teachers who demonstrate mastery of instructional skills and a consistent ability to help their students learn and thrive. It’s a high bar—and an honor.
Join a Network of Passionate Educators
We are training a generation of great teachers who believe that change starts in the classroom. Our programs aren’t for everyone. We believe teaching is a privilege and we hold the highest standards of any training program in America. But those who rise to meet them join an elite group of educators who are proving what’s possible in Nevada’s schools.
Teach Where You're Needed Most
All Nevada classrooms need great teachers, but we are especially in need of talented elementary teachers. NTC is preparing teachers to meet those needs. New teachers who join Nevada’s highest-need schools, where too many children start school already behind and struggle to catch up, may be eligible for bonuses of up to $5,000.
