Talented college undergraduates serve as the teaching fellows who make our summer programming possible.

Teaching fellows participate in a pre-service teaching residency and receive over 100 hours of teaching and leadership training, including 75 hours of lead classroom experience.


Breakthrough is proud to welcome a diverse group of teaching fellows from all academic majors, backgrounds, and with all professional interests to our classrooms each summer. Many teaching fellows go on to pursue successful careers in education.
