NYC Teaching Fellows Program

New York City Teaching Fellows Program 

LIU Brooklyn has worked successfully in collaboration with the New York City Teaching Fellows program and the New York City public schools since 2001 in the following areas:

  • Childhood Urban Education
  • Adolescent Urban Education and Teaching English as a Second Language
  • Teaching Children and Adolescents with Disabilities in Urban Contexts
  • Teaching Students with Disabilities: Middle Childhood

Through our partnership with the New York City Department of Education, our students are able to work as full time teachers while completing their graduate coursework.  Since its inception at LIU Brooklyn, the New York City Teaching fellows program has graduated over 700 teachers who are able to meet the educational needs of aspiring scholars in grades 1 - 12 within the City's five boroughs.
In 2014, the program welcomed over 200 students, who the majority are projected to graduate in 2015.  Following this cohort, the program also includes 171 fellows who were initiated in the summer of 2015.
