Earn your teaching license while making a difference in the classroom

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 models exceptional instructional approaches.
  • Residents use in-class experiences to better frame coursework in light of classroom experiences.
  • Innovative partner schools provide a unique opportunity to be trained while working in an urban classroom.
  • Programmatic and school-based structures contribute to a highly supportive community.
  • Partnerships with local universities to simultaneously earn a master’s degree in teaching or education.
  • AmeriCorps benefits including a financial education award.


Inspired Teaching is committed to building a teacher workforce that reflects the diversity of DC’s student population; people of color, speakers of languages other than English, and individuals with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to apply.
