Welcome to the Teaching Trust Recruitment website! We are excited to help you learn more about our three unique programs.
Teaching Trust is an independent 501(c)3 organization founded with the clear purpose of developing leaders who can transform schools from the inside out, are prepared to narrow the achievement gap, and will ensure that all children experience an extraordinary education. We believe leadership must be distributed and become an integral part of a school’s culture. This belief inspired us to create three signature programs that work in concert with each other to ensure school leaders and leadership teams can drive dramatic improvements in student achievement.
This program is a unique partnership between Teaching Trust and Southern Methodist University’s Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development. Participants earn their Texas Principal Certification and M. Ed. in Educational Leadership with an Urban School Specialization after two years of coursework and an in-school residency. This is followed by three additional years of coaching and support as our Aspiring Leaders become school leaders.

This one-year program supports teachers seeking to deepen their instructional competence, bolster their influence skills, and prepare them to take on roles leading teacher teams at the department or grade level. We offer two cohorts to achieve this goal - Instructional Leadership and Adult Leadership. The Instructional Leadership cohort supports Fellows in reaching their greatest impact through best instructional practices and classroom leadership. The Adult Leadership cohort supports Fellows in reaching their greatest impact by influencing and leading other adults.

This one-year program builds strong leadership teams at the campus level, helping principals and their school team work together to create and implement a robust plan for improvement. This program helps ready the broader leadership team within each school to realize their vision of an aspirational school culture and sustained academic gains.
