z-not-using Our Teachers

Teaching Fellows

Breakthrough Greater Boston teachers are bright, energetic, and driven. They come from diverse academic and personal backgrounds, but share a strong commitment to learning the art of teaching, to closing the achievement gap, and to making a real and lasting impact on their students.

Since 1992, Breakthrough Greater Boston has trained over 900 college and high school students to become the next generation of urban teachers.

Teaching at Breakthrough has been consistently ranked by Princeton Review as one of the Top Ten Internships in the US, along with working at the White House and the Supreme Court. As a result of the challenging and rewarding nature of teaching at Breakthrough, we are routinely able to secure high caliber teachers from some of the best colleges and high schools across the nation.

Instructional Coaches

Breakthrough’s Instructional Coaches (ICs) provide intensive training, coaching and support to our Teaching Fellows. Together, they orchestrate transformative summer learning experiences for primarily low-income students, the majority of whom will be the first in their families to graduate from four-year colleges.

Instructional Coaches bring experience, knowledge, passion for preparing the next generation of urban teachers and a commitment to equity and excellence. Teaching Fellows bring energy, commitment and a willingness to learn, as they serve as full-time teachers for six-week summer sessions. Coaching with Breakthrough is a life-changing opportunity to learn, teach and lead.

Instructional Coaches receive intensive training and materials to support Teaching Fellows while they implement Breakthrough-specific teaching strategies and curricula. ICs help Teaching Fellows differentiate lessons, engage challenging students and assess student work. ICs work closely with each other and Breakthrough directors to ensure all Teaching Fellows receive the support they need to be effective teachers.
