Candidates will develop a beginning understanding of disability categories present in the educational setting and methods for accommodating and modifying for a diverse array of student needs and capabilities.

This position is part-time and non-tenure-track and involves in-person teaching; pay is competitive. Applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received and will close once current positions are filled. Due to the volume of applications, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. No letters of recommendation are required at this time.

The Urban Teaching Apprenticeship master's program develops members of a network of transformational educators advocating for educational justice in urban contexts. UTAP educators center the voices and agency of students and their communities, combining reflective practice with a deep understanding of content knowledge and culturally responsive pedagogy. Coursework and intensive field experiences build on content expertise and support the development of pedagogical content knowledge. Teachers leave the program inspired to use the power of teaching to deepen student learning, transform schools, and increase educational equity.


We seek applicants with demonstrated commitment to excellence in k-12 teaching in urban schools and to the pursuit of social justice, equity, and inclusion.
