NYC Men Teach


Does anyone have experience or know anyone who participated in NYC Men Teach and received their alternative certification through NYCTF? I'm currently a social worker and plan on applying for 2017 and I've been in contact with NYC Men Teach. Does anyone know if my MSW will allow me to receive higher compensation or does the DOE only acknowledge education credits? I plan on applying for Special Education due to my background and interest. Would it be wise to mention an interest in D75 when writing my essays? I'm excited to apply once the application opens up. Thanks in advance for your responses!

--Hopeful NYCTF 2017

I'm part of cohort 27 and know of some people who participated in NYC Men Teach and NYCTF. The DOE only acknowledges education credits. Also you can mention D75 in your essay but I believe you have the option to choose if you want to do D75 once you're already accepted.
Good luck!

I am a part of the cohort 27 and they said all credits count towards pay differential even if they are not in education. The program is large, so conflicting information is common. But I would encourage you to apply to a pay differential once you are in, just in case. They also automatically complete a pay step for you based on your prior work experience. D75 can be extremely difficult and have a high turnover rate, so if that is what you are truly passionate about great! From what I have heard about NYC Men Teach it is additional seminars and mentorship, so hopefully it is helpful.

Thank you for responding! Do you have any recommendations on what to include in my application to stick out? Are there any activities or meetings that occur on the weekends? Also, are new teachers able to teach summer school their first year?

I think to make your application to stick out is be yourself. I think you should thoroughly research the program before applying so you know what your getting into. I hope your not about the money because its about the kids. People that were about the money dropped out during pst or were kicked out due to the level of rigor. Good luck.
