Overview

Excel Academy Charter Schools is partnering with the Sposato Graduate School of Education (SGSE) to offer a unique teacher training experience for aspiring urban educators. As an Excel Teaching Fellow, you will have the opportunity to simultaneously gain both real-world and academic experience that is designed to prepare you to take on a role as a lead classroom teacher after one calendar year.

The Excel Fellow Role

Excel Teaching Fellows will function as members of the school-based instructional team at one of the network’s three middle school campuses. The role is a one-year commitment. Fellows will have the option to apply for a lead teacher role at an Excel school the following school year if they choose, but a permanent position is not guaranteed. School-based duties and responsibilities for Fellows include:

Additionally, each Fellow will be assigned a host teacher and a coach. The host teacher is someone who teaches in the subject area that the Fellow is pursuing. This teacher’s classroom is the Fellow’s home base, although Fellows will have the opportunity to observe in other classrooms as well. In the spring, Fellows will complete their student teaching in the host teacher’s classroom. Fellows will be observed regularly and receive feedback on their teaching from both their host teacher and their coach (who may be the same person).

Fellows will enroll in SGSE’s two-year teacher preparation program and will take classes and engage in SGSE training in addition to their Excel Teaching Fellow responsibilities. This coursework will result in several teaching credentials over the course of the two-year program, including:
