Last year, the Arkansas Teacher Corps (ATC) received over 200 urgent requests for classroom teachers from schools serving predominantly low income and minority students in Arkansas. Every student deserves an outstanding educator working to ensure they meet their full potential. Arkansas Teacher Corps serves these students and communities by providing them with committed, energetic teachers focused on empowering all of their students. Our teachers come from many different backgrounds, but they all share something in common: they see social inequality and they do something about it every day.
ATC is looking for bright, energetic, and committed individuals from all majors and backgrounds to become teachers for Arkansas students who need them most. The individuals who are accepted into the Arkansas Teacher Corps are given a direct opportunity to serve children and give back to the state. There are three deadlines for application per year: October 30th 2017, January 3rd 2018, and March 5th 2018. Successful applicants will begin Summer Institute in June of 2018 and begin working as full-time teachers in the fall of 2018. ATC expects Fellows to be open to serve in the Arkansas Delta.
