    I worked at NYC Teaching Fellows full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Meeting awesome people who are driven to become successful teachers

    Cons

    Too fast paced You won’t have time for yourself or anyone else I don’t know how they think it’s realistic to come home and do a whole ton of work when you’re getting home after 8pm and you’ve just been working and at university all day. Communication is horrendous

    Advice to Management

    Fix the program or shut it down

    I have been working at NYC Teaching Fellows full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Majority of tuition subsidized *Become an employee of the DOE with full benefits while completing masters. *Pre service training (PST) will prepare you for the expectations of the DOE *The support system of current Fellows and alums *No commitment to stay with the DOE once you complete the program *You are placed for PST training- but you select your school placement in the DOE (apply, interview, and decide if...

    Cons

    *Balancing the demands of full time teaching and completing a masters program *Onsite training (on the job training with a class) for PST is demanding- you have to lose yourself and be whatever the coach wants you to be (ADVICE: Do whatever it takes to pass.Once you complete PST you chose the school that fits you and allows you to develop your teacher self) *The stipend is low during training

    Advice to Management

    I am very happy with my Masters Program because my course work is relevant and can be applied to my pedagogy immediately. The CST webinars to prep for state certification exams and online portal checklist, and helpline were great resources to get me off to a solid strat in the program. PST onsite training is disheartening, try training staff on how to approach training adults. It honestly feels like a hazing process and...

    I have been working at NYC Teaching Fellows full-time

    Pros

    The children. Cohort friendships, support and networking.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed program. Grad school classes are not very relevant or helpful. Coaches, Lead instructors can be absolutely fake and horrible. The way they treat some fellows is just sad and pathetic. Sure, they are well educated and have lots of experience but they have no idea how to be a decent human being. No support, you have to figure out a lot on your own. It helps if you have at least some experience before...

    Advice to Management

    Revamp this program. It makes no sense to teach fellows about empathy and respect all day, yet the staff won't lead by example. Many fellows will probably agree that it is the staff (coaches, TADs and Lead instructors) who make this program much more frustrating than it needs to be. Therefore, train them to act like coaches and not bullies.
