    Pros

    - foot in the door of the oldest and one of the most arcane and bureaucratic school systems in the US -subsidized masters

    Kontras

    - don't fool yourself - even if you've got the diploma nothing in experience makes the masters program feels like a real masters - next to no support (think benign neglect) and in some cases, forces outright undermining your success as a teacher.

    Rat an das Management

    get this program in shape or shut it down. to prospective and current candidates: for the love of god, don't do this if you're a rational human being who is sane or who likes themself. this program in no way prepares you for teaching, and you'll probably have to unlearn some of the bad habits and information you're taught during the summer intensive. teach like a champion? more like teach like a robot. the... masters program is an absolute joke and you're more likely to find sensible people who go through the traditional route to certification - people who didn't have the ego to think they could learn everything to know about teaching in two years or who are carefully vetted enough to get into a school of education.* also, the program intentionally hides the number of certification exams, workshops, courses, miscellanea that you need to do in order to actually get certified.** the path to certification is not as easy as advertised and you do not need that stress. paying for all this will cost upwards of $1,000 in one of the most expensive cities in the world and you DO NOT NEED THAT STRESS. truly, YOU DO NOT NEED IT. it's ironic that you will find so little support in a program that purports to train caring, intelligent individuals to be teachers. the fellows program essentially leaves you the wolves, your university, and the Dept. of Ed (DOE). the DOE, your employer, is a crapshoot, as is any one school within the doe. you do not get support in finding a school placement. there are a lot of politics involved. you could find a job at an amazing school. but you will most likely find a job at a struggling school. you will meet absolutely amazing people who inspire you to do your best. you will also meet people who will make you question the future of humanity. sometimes they exist in the same building. sadly, that means there's probably drama in the building. think about this program, really think about it before you decide to apply/accept/whatever. think about what kind of people are drawn to a program that plays on people's hero complexes, think about the "schools" of education that are willing to partner with an organization that offers emergency certification, think about the kind of public schools that are willing to accept idealistic new teachers who are willing to work in hard conditions to get established. I, too, was once a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed innocent, eager to "make a difference." Now, I don't even know what that making a difference means anymore. Unless you really are one of those amazing saints who is amazingly organized and hardworking, and who cares about the children (especially the kids in inner city areas who need good teachers) but have really good reasons for not going a traditional route for certification, then go for it. If you didn't get accepted to the program, don't take it as a reliable judgment of your character or suitability as a teacher. there are better ways to becoming a teacher out there. *to be fair, there are also some traditional schools of ed that are terrible and some people who go through them that shouldn't be teachers. and there are some really good people in the program. but the program, as a whole, still sucks. and we all suffer. all. of. us. **also, don't fall for those sappy posters in the subway cars. it's misleading. i don't even care if this gets flagged, i regret doing this program so much that i want to shout it from the rooftops. 0/10 would not do again.

    Pros

    Meeting awesome people who are driven to become successful teachers

    Kontras

    Too fast paced You won’t have time for yourself or anyone else I don’t know how they think it’s realistic to come home and do a whole ton of work when you’re getting home after 8pm and you’ve just been working and at university all day. Communication is horrendous

    Rat an das Management

    Fix the program or shut it down

    Pros

    Get certified fast and meeting great people

    Kontras

    During pst if your coach doesn’t like you. You wouldn’t pass the training. There’s a lot of bias and racism at some sites. This is all about luck and getting into the right site for pst.

    Rat an das Management

    Hire unbiased teaching academy director and coaches. A teaching academy director shouldn’t be from the school they work at because that’s when concerns with coaches cannot be dealt with.
