Who We Are
A city that needs no introduction, L.A. epitomizes the belief that all things are possible. Roots LA Teaching Pathway is looking for bright, driven undergraduate college juniors with a passion for teaching and who believe all children can succeed. We are committed to make the City of Angels a place where all students can dream big—and have the knowledge and support to realize those dreams.

Roots LA can enable you to transform your academic and professional expertise into a high-impact career as an outstanding certified teacher.


Program Overview
The first year is hard for any new teacher, and you will work in communities where systemic inequities and individual prejudices have denied too many children access to a great education. To prepare you for that challenge, you will receive intensive pre-service training and coaching through Roots LA.
Roots LA Fellows develop the skills to help students build their knowledge by making meaningful connections between challenging, meaningful content and students’ unique values and experiences.

We are currently seeking outstanding candidates to teach critical-need subjects, including math, science, special education and bilingual. We are especially interested in applicants who grew up in L.A. or attended L.A. public or charter high schools.


Who We Want
Roots LA is recruiting and training college-aged Angelenos who want to make a difference in their home communities by helping every student receive a great education.

We look for accomplished individuals who possess the skills and deep content knowledge to teach critical subjects where great teachers are often in short supply, like science, math, and special education.

Benefits of Roots LA
Unique Opportunity: Roots LA is the first teacher training program of its kind—offering college juniors in Los Angeles the opportunity to train to become teachers, earn a job offer before heading off into senior year, and earn a $2,250 summer stipend during pre-service training.

Classroom-Centered Training: Our training is radically simple: focused practice on key skills, knowledge, and mindsets to get new teachers off to a strong start. Where traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on skill-building, our innovative training is centered around actual teaching experience and focused practice on core skills, such as reflecting on students’ values, experiences, and ambitions to create opportunities for students to see themselves in challenging content that will prepare them for success.

Community-Focused: California faces an increasing shortage of qualified teachers to meet students’ needs—and minority communities are bearing the brunt of this shortfall. Roots LA is recruiting and training college-aged Angelenos who want to make a difference in their home communities.

Full Salary and Benefits: Fellows will begin earning a full teacher’s salary, while pursuing certification when they start working full-time at a district or charter school.
Position Requirements
High School,   Less than 1 Year work experience

Additional Information / Benefits
A city that needs no introduction, L.A. epitomizes the belief that all things are possible. From Hollywood to SpaceX to Homeboy Industries, Angelenos tackle challenges with resolve, optimism, and innovation. We are committed to making the City of Angels a place where all students can dream big—and have the knowledge and support to realize those dreams.

We are proud of our roots and proud to call L.A. home. As one of the country’s most diverse cities, we believe that diversity should be reflected in L.A. classrooms. Yet, in a city where nearly 90 percent of students are people of color, only 60 percent of teachers are people of color. While teachers of any background can make a difference in the lives of students, we believe (and research supports) that students benefit from teachers of similar backgrounds. In our inaugural cohort, 95 percent of our Fellows were people of color, many of whom were graduates of schools in Los Angeles themselves
