Through structured classroom experience guided by an experienced mentor, observation, and coaching you will develop the skills and mindset to design rigorous and inclusive instruction and become a successful lead classroom teacher.
Mentorship and Professional Development
As an Excel Academy Teaching Fellow, you will be coached and mentored by an experienced teacher who will support your professional growth over the course of the year. You will become part of a diverse cohort of aspiring educators. Together you will participate in weekly professional development sessions with topics including rigorous classroom instruction, classroom management, data-driven instruction, and equity and inclusion.
