Our Associate Teacher Program prepares aspiring teachers for successful careers in just one year.

Because we know great teachers are made, not born, we created the Brooke Associate Teacher Corps: a yearlong, school-based teacher preparation program that empowers corps members to become successful lead teachers.

Whether they come to us with a master’s degree in education or no previous teaching experience, Associate Teachers receive frequent feedback and coaching as they learn how to lead a classroom in which every student is challenged and known.

If you want to learn more, please contact our Associate Teacher Program Manager, Sadie Shea, via email ( or schedule an informational call.

Brooke is seeking a diverse group of aspiring teachers with a desire to uproot racism through academics and equip students with tools to advocate for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive future. Qualifications include:

  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Excellent collaboration, communication, and organization skills
  • Commitment to teaching and ensuring academic success for all students
