Center for Inspired Teaching, is accepting applications for a 24-month state accredited
teacher certification program that recruits, selects, prepares and supports exceptional
individuals who wish to serve the children of the District of Columbia as teachers. Inspired
Teaching Fellows learn the skills and dispositions of Inspired Teachers who recognize each
child's innate desire to learn and build on individual strengths to maximize academic, social and emotional achievement.

Inspired Teaching Fellows begin their teaching career with a 12-month Residency year, working under the guidance of a Lead Teacher, allowing them to gain the knowledge and experience to enable a smooth transition into the teaching career. Fellows then continue attending coursework and receiving increased mentoring during the Fellowship year of the program, as a teacher of record. Inspired Teachers are certified in Early Childhood (PreK-3) or Elementary Education (1-6).

Program Benefits:
• Prepare for a career in teaching under the guidance of an experienced Lead Teacher who
