How you helpThe Collaborative is the largest pre-professional teacher-training program in the United States. As the premier pre-service teaching residency in the country, the Collaborative provides aspiring educators with the opportunity to gain firsthand experience as classroom teachers. Each summer, more than 1,000 undergraduate college students participate in Breakthrough’s nine-week teaching residencies as Teaching Fellows. During their participation in the program, Teaching Fellows receive more than 100 hours of professional development and leadership training. Teaching Fellows spend 75 of these hours as lead teachers in their own classrooms.

Who is excited to meet all these awesome TFs for real!?! Today, were excited to introduce you to Umbereen, one of our 8th grade math Teaching Fellows.My name is Umbereen Rashid and I am a rising senior at Rutgers University! I am currently majoring in History with a minor in Psychology, and I plan on becoming a Secondary Social Studies Teacher! Some of my hobbies include reading, writing, hiking, and watching The Office! Since I was in middle school I have always wanted to be a teacher and make an impact in my students’ lives through education.
