The New Teacher Project

  • History
    The New Teacher Project (TNTP) is nationally recognized as an expert in recruiting new teachers for shortage-area subjects such as math, science and special education. Since the program's inception in 2000, nearly 26,500 Teaching Fellows have been hired in more than 38 U.S. cities. TNTP’s Indianapolis Teaching Fellows program, one of the state’s first alternative certification programs, has transformed 197 recent graduates and professionals into talented teachers since 2007, filling critical vacancies in dozens of Indianapolis-area public and charter schools. Given its extensive experience and ongoing presence in Indiana, TNTP is uniquely positioned to help the Indiana Department of Education build on this progress and ensure that students in the state’s lowest-performing schools have access to the outstanding teachers they need and deserve.
