The New Teacher Project, also known as TNTP, is a non-profit organization that focuses on assisting poor and minority students in gaining equal access to effective and highly qualified teachers. The organization provides assistance to school districts in an urban setting in hiring, training, and retaining teachers in challenged or low income schools, as well as in schools where the most of children identify as being a member of a minority race.
Teacher Michelle Rhee founded TNTP in 1997. Ms. Rhee wanted to close the achievement gap that occurred when all children do not have access to highly qualified and effective teachers. Ms. Rhee also wanted to recruit minority candidates who have a strong knowledge and interest in math and sciences. The board of directors at The New Teacher Project also identified challenges that many struggling school districts face, such as the resources for adequate staffing and being able to provide teacher certification training that meets rigorous standards. It is estimated that TNTP has either recruited or trained 43,000 teachers since 1997, directly impacting approximately seven million students.
TNTP employs over 300 individuals in approximately 100 cities across the United States. The organization is committed to ensuring a diverse workplace. The New Teacher Project culture is one of passion, diversity, and commitment. Each member of the TNTP team has a goal of ensuring that every child in the United States has access to outstanding teachers. This drives each person to be committed to a healthy, productive, and committed work environment that focuses on collaboration and teamwork.
TNTP careers are available at the full time, part time, and seasonal levels and offices are located in many states across America. There are individuals with an expertise in performance management, business analysis, regional and upper level management, teacher observation, teacher training, classroom observation, literacy, special education, training, and office administration fields working at TNTP.
Full-time employees are offered a comprehensive New Teacher Project benefits package. The company offers a generous paid time off program, including paid family leave and vacation time. Qualified employees also receive health, dental, and vision insurance as well as flexible spending accounts, 403(b) retirement plans, and commuter benefits. Those seeking additional education are eligible to receive technical training tuition reimbursement. There is also a professional development budget which allows for employees to be reimbursed to attend conferences and trainings, purchase books, and join professional memberships to further develop skills.
