The Arkansas Teacher Corps (ATC) is a partnership between the University of Arkansas, the Arkansas Department of Education, and Arkansas public school districts to recruit, train, license, and support Arkansans as empowered teachers facilitating excellent, equitable education every day.

Arkansas Teacher Corps aims to:

  • Recruit passionate, committed individuals from diverse backgrounds and all majors to teach a critical shortage content area for three years in an ATC partner school
  • Train, develop, and support Fellows as rigorous, data-literate, and culturally responsive classroom teachers
  • Partner with schools and communities to provide a grow-your-own pathway to teacher licensure for non-certified school staff and dedicated community members
  • Support students in realizing significant academic and social-emotional growth

Funding for the program has been made available by the U of A College of Education and Health Professions, the Walton Family Foundation, ADE, and individual donors through the Arkansas Teacher Corps Society.

I want nothing more than to play a role in helping mold, shape, and educate the future citizens of our great state.
