    "Looking for a stable job opportunity? This is not it!"

    SternSternSternSternStern
    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Special Education Teacher 

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei NYC Teaching Fellows (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    After pre-service training you are paid as a full-time teacher while you earn your Master's degree and work on your certification. With the exception of $8,000 which you must pay, DOE pays for your Master's degree.

    Kontras

    1) Due to heavy politics, position is not stable; if you have a job already don't quit to become a fellow, because acceptance into the program is no guarantee that you will be allowed to finish; and then you will be stuck with no job. 2) First three months ~$800 month stipend only. 3) If you don't live at home with your mother, you'll need a second job to survive 1st 3 months; caveat is - it is almost impossible to work a 2nd job based on the volume of work. 4) Because the environment is very political, be prepared to compromise your integrity or lose your job. 5) Even if you meet all of the academic requirements, pass all State exams and get all "A"s in the Master's program, if you are not willing to go along with questionable policies, just to get along, its difficult to move forward. 6) If you are from out of town - Fellows offers no housing support, and its difficult to find decent housing in New York.

    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei NYC Teaching Fellows als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

    Offers an opportunity for people to change careers or to pursue a teaching career at low cost.

    Kontras

    Poorly organized, does not listen to or support fellows, hires terrible leaders and coaches, prepares you for militaristic discipline, teaches you how to treat students like numbers

    Ich habe bei NYC Teaching Fellows gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Shortened timeline for hiring - The kids are actually a blast... when you make a connection and ignore all of your training. - Having a cohort to go through it all together makes it easier (certainly makes grad school homework easier) but you'll still be offended by half of them.

    Kontras

    - The degree isn't actually subsidized for those qualifying for in-state tuition. In fact, you pay for your degree. This is the first of many NYCTF lies. - Very little diversity to match the student population you'll be teaching. It shows. All the time and if you're a POC, you will want to kill yourself during training group share outs hearing some of the self-righteous nonsense. - Zero reliable communication from NYCTF (incorrect and often late, only email - no one answers the phone) - Most unreliable with pay; also, summer fellows (2 months) get paid the same as fall fellows (4 months) - for fall fellows, consider student loans in order to live after starving the first 8 weeks. - The staff hates life. They're sarcastic, rude and completely lack self-awareness (because they fluff each other's egos constantly.) They may love each other but their students definitely hate them, including/especially fellows. My favorite is when they share a life-changing teacher moment that actually just illustrates how biased (sometimes racist) they were/are. - They clearly like to tokenize people throughout the interview process. It's clear. Notice who gets kicked out, you'll have known from day 1. - NO HIRING SUPPORT. They provide a guide that covers so many hypotheticals, it's worthless. Network with other teachers, find out where positions are open, pray. - Zero standards, all subjective feedback. Zero interview questions, they just want to see you copy the video samples they provide (throughout the entire process. I REPEAT: ZERO INTERVIEWS/HOMEWORK, all you do is imitate their teaching clips a minute after viewing). - A lot of subjectivity in grading so just make sure you maintain good relationships because, in the end, that is all that will save you: someone "higher up" vouching for you. - You will not get training in your specific content area. You're given 4 books to read throughout classes. Read them. Teach yourself (like a champion). - Most teaching academy coaches will have zero experience coaching. You'd think because they're teachers they (and NYCTF staff) would be good at teaching but clearly not. They would need lesson plans to have effective conversations. Or a video to copy. Everyone is just trying to mold you after their self so simply pretend they're the best and roll your eyes behind their back. Then move on. [NB: Not all coaches suck).

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei NYC Teaching Fellows (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - You are allowed to work as a fully-paid NYC teacher while getting your certification. (For me, a father supporting my family on my single income, two years in a traditional teaching school was not an option.)

    Kontras

    - Grueling. - Management, classes, training, schedules, everything is poorly organized. - The grad school classes may have little to do with what is actually going on in your classroom. - Grueling.

    "Teaching Fellow"

    SternSternSternSternStern
    Akt. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter 

    Ich arbeite bei NYC Teaching Fellows (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    hands-on experience being in a special education classroom if you are placed in special education subsidized masters education (positive initiative)

    Kontras

    I do think that people with color do get preferential treatment and that they observe you and that one observation basically determines your ability as a teacher, which is totally unfair because one observation does not mean you are not a good teacher, especially if you are a new teacher in training. Sometimes the program will give you harsh reviews and criticism that will make you lose faith in your ability to teach, but also they don't take in consideration about the learning environment that students are in. For example, why would a general education teacher observe a fellow in a special education setting where certain rules that they teach you in skill building don't really work and that the special education students don't learn the same as general education students? I would have to say that they give you very little time to become the best teacher that you can be and 3 months to become the very best teacher is very unrealistic. I would definitely say that this program has a very little time constraint and grades you mostly on classroom observations and gives you very little time to improve your teaching skills.

    "Unethical and Irresponsible"

    SternSternSternSternStern
    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Anonymer Mitarbeiter 
    Empfiehlt nicht

    Ich habe bei NYC Teaching Fellows gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Kontras

    The program is unethical since it requires candidates to quit their jobs and doesn't inform fellows that they may fail the summer training and be eliminated from the program. The summer training is an unfair judgement of fellows' teaching abilities. It's not a training since fellows are expected to perform perfectly since the beginning. The coaches are not there to coach but to put people down. Even there is a significant improvement shown by a fellow's teaching abilities, and the fellow meets the expectations at the end of the training, the fellow will still be considered 'does not meet expectations' and being dropped from the program. Teaching Fellows NEVER shows the exact scores and yet send a 'Do Not Meet Expectations' email to a fellow. There are definitely racism and discrimination going on in the summer training.
