Founded in 2003 by social entrepreneur, Rowan Claypool, Teach Kentucky launches the education careers of ambitious college graduates in Louisville, Kentucky’s public schools. The organization has grown from bringing two teacher candidates in its first year to annually bringing a new 25-30 person cohort of aspiring teachers from across the nation to our city. Once they are here, our teachers stay and build their professional and personal lives.
We have been successful because we understand the incredible challenges that face new teachers working in public schools. Teach Kentucky’s community and teacher support network are dedicated to helping all of our recruits succeed. We don’t just recruit you. We get to know you, connect you with other like-minded community members, and support you as you begin an incredibly rewarding career.
