Arizona Teaching Fellows
Arizona Teaching Fellows is a unique program offered through a partnership between the University of Arizona and Southern Arizona School Districts. Students in the program work closely with one partnering school district throughout their teacher preparation program, completing all of the fieldwork in that district with one or more mentor teachers who are also dedicated to working with children and adolescents in Southern Arizona.
If you are an energetic person interested in becoming a teacher and want to make a difference in student lives, then this is the program for you.
What are the benefits of being an Arizona Teaching Fellow?
• Receiving financial support
• Working closely with one local school district and community
• Earning an opportunity to be hired by that school district
• Participating in forums designed to link coursework expectations more closely with school and district expectations.
• Enabling children and adolescents to be successful—now and into the future
