What makes a BETA role unique?
Our unique instructional program is rooted in the power of individual relationships made possible by reduced student-to-teacher ratios. BETAs work with students in small groups within the classroom, creating safe spaces for students to more fully engage with rigorous content.
Teams power our work at every level. BETAs work alongside three other BETAs and an experienced lead teacher to increase academic rigor and accelerate achievement. The collaboration among these diverse teams leads to greater outcomes for students, and furthers the development of BETAs as apprentice teachers.
1-2 YEAR COMMITMENT
BETAs commit to a one-year term of AmeriCorps service. At the end of the year, BETAs may choose to participate for a second year with increased responsibilities and an increased stipend. In this second year, BETAs have the option to enroll in our partner teacher residency program to become fully certified teachers the following year.
