2021 March 8
by HISD Communications

Research suggests children benefit in many ways from having a teacher of the same race or ethnicity. Now more than ever, the diversity of our country’s teaching workforce is at risk. Even before COVID-19, Latino teachers were facing unique challenges that led to job dissatisfaction, and many Latino educators leaving the profession before they master teaching.

The Latinx Teachers’ Fellowship will provide a national cohort of 45-75 Latinx K-12 teachers with a learning network of peers and the tools to collaboratively prepare to maintain and improve the skills needed to serve large ELL populations during the re-entry process. Applications are now open. The fellowship carries a stipend of $25 per hour up to 25 hours.

  • 2-7 years of K-12 teaching experience
