In partnership with the Relay Graduate School of Education, the KIPP Houston Graduate Teaching Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for aspiring teachers to learn alongside mentor teachers, while earning a master’s degree in teaching and a Texas teaching certificate. This prestigious, paid, two-year fellowship immerses Fellows in intensive training through coursework and deliberate practice with a gradual on-ramp into teaching. Paired with master teachers during their first year, Fellows gradually take on more instructional responsibilities before stepping into the classroom full time their second year in the program.
