COMBATING RACIAL AND SOCIOECONOMIC INEQUALITY

Founded in 1729, Baltimore’s story is very much the story of America: one of growth and opportunity, but also one in which communities of color have not shared equally in those advantages. It is a place where segregation and injustice have been countered by families, communities, and institutions driven by a vision of social justice. Nowhere are the past and present of Baltimore City better reflected than in the city’s public schools.

Teaching in Baltimore

Baltimore is a big city whose eclectic neighborhoods make it feel like a small town. With one of the nation’s oldest public school systems, Baltimore offers a range of school models and specializations, from early college programs to vocational-technical schools, language immersion, visual and performing arts, and STEM emphases. As a part of City Teaching Alliance, you’ll make a difference in one of these 164 schools over the next four years. Across the city, we rally around the young people in our classrooms and the educators who support them. You’ll discover that there’s no better way to start your career in education than with the incredible children and teens who call Baltimore their home.

“I knew [City Teaching Alliance] was a good decision when I noticed I could have impromptu, in-depth conversations with my classmates outside of class. We would build each other up. For example, a colleague shared some motivational African American teacher speakers that he leans on to remind himself why he’s teaching. These experiences can only happen in a summer dorm kind of environment."
