Inspired Teacher Certification Program
The Inspired Teacher Certification Program is a state-accredited, 24-month program that prepares, supports, and certifies highly-qualified individuals to become early childhood and elementary teachers in the District of Columbia.
Inspired Teaching Fellows begin their teacher career with a residency year, working under the guidance of a lead teacher, gaining the knowledge and experience to enable a smooth transition into their teaching career. In their second year, Fellows, as teachers of record in District of Columbia public schools, continue with coursework and mentoring.
The Inspired Teacher Certification Program is rooted in the belief that teachers, as Instigators of Thought, can be change-makers in their classrooms, schools, and society as a whole. Becoming a part of Inspired Teaching means joining a movement to change the way children are educated. Inspired Teaching believes that it will be teachers who ultimately change schools in our country so that they can achieve the promise of ensuring all children reach their full potential.
