As Associate Teachers grow…so do students
Licensure & Master’s
In partnership with the Relay Graduate School of Education, the Associate Teacher Pathway offers aspiring teachers a unique opportunity to receive high-quality training at a KIPP Nashville school while pursuing teacher licensure and a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT). Tuition is fully subsidized by KIPP Nashville over the course of three years.
One Year On-Ramp
Each Associate Teacher is paired with a high-performing KIPP teacher who serves as a mentor and advisor for the year. Using an intentional gradual release model, Associate Teachers gradually take on more responsibility over the course of the year. This allows Associate Teachers to get daily practice in small and whole group settings in a highly supportive environment.
Associate Teachers receive weekly, individualized coaching. KIPP Nashville fully commits to the growth and development of Associate Teachers with the explicit goal that, upon successful completion of the initial year, each will move into a Lead Teaching role at KIPP Nashville.
