Operation TEACH is accepting applications for its next cohort of K-12 Catholic school teachers in Baltimore. Members of Operation TEACH commit to teaching for two years in a Baltimore area Catholic school, earn a graduate degree in education from Notre Dame of Maryland University, and live in community with other Operation TEACH members. Operation TEACH participants earn a $14,000 yearly stipend for their teaching service and receive a full scholarship to Notre Dame of Maryland University.
Operation TEACH welcomes candidates of all academic backgrounds, including applicants who hold an undergraduate degree in education or a teachable content area (i.e. English, Biology, History). Candidates must graduate from their undergraduate institution Spring 2019 to be considered for the upcoming cohort. Operation TEACH candidates must desire a career in education, demonstrate a willingness to teach in Catholic schools, and the ability to live in community with others.
Operation TEACH candidates indicate their teaching preferences (i.e. grade level and subject areas) upon submitting their application and are hired directly by a Baltimore area Catholic school principal for a teaching position for which they qualify based on previous education and work experience.
Applicants for the TEACH 19 cohort commit to a program start date in early July 2019 for orientation at Notre Dame of Maryland University, followed by teaching commitments for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years. Accepted Operation TEACH members have the option to retain their Baltimore area Catholic school teaching position after the two year commitment. Interested Operation TEACH candidates must submit all application materials by February 1, 2019.
Operation TEACH is a partnership between Notre Dame of Maryland University and the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Operation TEACH was established in 2001 and is a member of the University Consortium of Catholic Education.
