The Arka Tech

Teachers Corps looking to hire

Only one of every five Arkansans have a bachelors degree. For some students in Arkansas, attending college seems like an unobtainable dream.

The Arkansas Teacher Corps seeks to put inspired applicants in life­changing roles as teachers and leaders in high-­need schools across the state. The corps accepts applicants of all majors and backgrounds and works with selected fellows to ensure that they feel prepared to teach.

Fellows are placed in schools deemed high­need across the state. Fellows take on the responsibilities and privileges of a traditionally trained teacher and are full employees of the school in which they teach. In addition to the teacher salaries and benefits, ATC fellows receive a $15,000 stipend spread over their first three years of teaching.

Fellows also have a three year period of mentorship and assessment with the Arkansas Teacher Corps staff.

If you want to make a difference, there is no better place than the classrooms of Arkansas. Applications are open now at arkansasteachercorps.org. ​Final application deadline is March 1.

Questions can be directed to Sam Hoisington, ATU campus representative, at shoisington@atu.edu.
