Teaching Math

Teaching Math


Denver students need math teachers with both deep content knowledge and a commitment to closing the achievement gap. You could be one of them. In today’s increasingly competitive and global economy, mathematics skills are essential. And yet only 17% of ninth grade students and 15% of tenth grade students in Denver Public Schools score at proficient or advanced levels in math. Denver students need you in the classroom.

In joining this selective network, Teaching Fellows teaching math are charged with ensuring that their students master the content knowledge for their particular grade level, acquiring the skills necessary to succeed in school and in life. Fellows who meet the eligibility requirements to teach math bring a strong academic background and/or career experience that allow them to become successful first-year teachers. Fellows deliver exciting, hands-on lessons that tie theories and concepts to real-world applications and professions.

Teaching Fellows benefit from a streamlined application process, a network of like-minded professionals and new educators, and a specialized training which focuses on leveraging prior experiences to translate previous successes into future classroom success. Training courses cover teaching pedagogy, and include topics such as lesson planning and delivery, long-term planning, and research-based High Impact Teaching Strategies (HITS). In addition, Fellows will learn about specific math curricula they will likely use in their fall teaching placements and how to use resources to successfully communicate concepts while holding student attention.

At their school sites, Fellows may collaborate with other department members and teachers. Fellows will also benefit from a network of other Teaching Fellows - a cohort of colleagues available to share challenges, best practices, and ideas. Fellows will earn their licensure while teaching full-time and receiving full salary and benefits. Applying to become a Teaching Fellow is your chance to share your knowledge and expertise in a way that can impact lives.
