  Indiana Teaching Opportunities

ITF is a program designed to place teachers in high-need areas to overcome the education gap in many struggling Indiana schools. Combines an intensive schedule of academic classes, held during the summer at Notre Dame, with two years of applied learning teaching in classrooms in under-resourced Catholic schools. Americorp is a 1-year commitment to do volunteer work within the U.S. and Indiana in a wide variety of sites. Many non-profits have a relationship with AmeriCorps.
The Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship seeks to attract talented, committed individuals with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) backgrounds—including current undergraduates, recent college graduates, mid-career professionals, and retirees—into teaching in high-need secondary schools. Culver interns participate fully in the life of the Academies under the direction of mentor teachers, counselors, and coaches. These mentors help the intern learn the basics of teaching and coaching methodologies, classroom management and group dynamics, as well as parent/student relationships. In addition to working in their chosen academic field, interns assist with extracurricular activities, working with an impressive array of student athletic teams or in the Academies’ rich and active Fine Arts program.
