Who We Are

Nevada Teacher Corps prepares individuals without teaching certification to become teachers. Through Nevada Teacher Corps, you will transform your academic and professional expertise into a high-impact career as a certified Elementary Education teacher in Clark County Public Schools and various charter schools in the Las Vegas area.

Who Our Students Need

You may have built a successful career, and now wish to give back as a teacher. You could be an accomplished recent graduate who wants to share your passion for learning with Las Vegas' students. Whatever your background, you believe that every student can achieve at a high-level and will do whatever it takes to help them get there.

Nevada Teacher Corps is currently looking for Elementary Education teachers.


Classroom-Centered Preparation: Fellows prepare to enter the classroom by participating in a five-week training experience. Where traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on skill-building, our innovative training is centered around actual teaching experience in summer school classrooms and focused practice on core skills, including reflecting on students' values, experiences, and ambitions to create opportunities for students to see themselves in challenging content that will prepare them for success. There is no cost for this training, but Fellows are responsible for expenses related to pre-employment requirements such as background checks, fingerprinting (approximately $50) and state required certification exam fees ($45-150 each).

Compensation: Fellows are hired as full-time teachers by our school partners and will begin teaching for the 2019-20 school year. They receive the same compensation as all other first-year teachers, including a starting salary of $32,000 - $40,900 plus comprehensive benefits.

Certification: During the first year in the classroom, Fellows earn certification through our certification program which includes coursework and individualized support that builds on the skills mastered during training. Nevada Teacher Corps Fellows are recognized not simply as certified teachers, but as having a proven track record of classroom success. The tuition of $5,500 is payable throughout the year once Fellows start receiving a full-time salary. In addition, various schools offer full or partial tuition reimbursement and the opportunity to apply for an Americorps award up to $5,920 for education related expenses or previous student loans.
