PEF and HCDE’s teacher residency program, Project Inspire, is looking for people interested in teaching math and science in high needs schools in Hamilton County.
Officials said, "This would be a perfect opportunity for college students nearing graduation and majoring in a STEM field (science, technology, engineering and math) or professionals working in a STEM field who are looking for a career change."
PEF and Project Inspire Tennessee will have an informational meeting on Tuesday, at 5:30 p.m. at PEF which is at 100 E. 10th Street in Chattanooga. Project Inspire will also be hosting a webinar on Thursday, from 7-8 p.m.

Officials said, "Project Inspire is a teacher residency program, much like a medical residency. If you have a passion for learning, seek to positively influence communities, and consistently pursue ambitious goals, then Project Inspire is for you."
As part of Project Inspire participants will:
? Earn a Tennessee license for teaching in just one year
? Earn a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Tennessee Technological University
? Receive a living stipend during the residency year
