> Subject: Help us find great new teachers for Chicago's high need students!
>  
> Dear Community Leader,
>  
> Last year fewer than 60% of high school students in Chicago Public Schools
> graduated high school.
>  
> The education inequality that exists in our city’s schools sets tens of thousands of students’ lives on a negative trajectory that impacts their families, their communities, and our city at large.
>  
> Your organization and ours share a commitment to improving lives, families, and communities. To that end, Chicago Teaching Fellows (CTF) partners with Chicago Public Schools (CPS) to find undiscovered teaching talent to teach in its high need schools.  While we currently have an accomplished group of professional educators, a critical shortage of skilled, effective special education, bilingual Spanish education, high school math and high school science teachers continues to exist.
>  
> Our focus is to close the achievement gap in Chicago Public Schools by providing highly effective teachers to the students who need them the most. We know that many of our future great teachers exist in the professional ranks of business, public, and non-profit sectors – people with the wisdom, experience, personality, and sense of commitment to make a difference in the lives of our students.
>  
> We are a highly-selective, innovative path for talented mid-career professionals and recent college graduates to become teachers and make a measurable difference in our most critical shortage subject areas and highest need schools. 
>  
> What can you do to help? Take three minutes to send the attachment to your members and the communities that you serve.
>  
>  
> The Chicago Teaching Fellows application for the 2012 school year is now open. We are looking for qualified candidates to teach in the following subject areas:
>  
> Bilingual Education - Spanish
> High School Math
> High School Science
> Special Education
>  
> Please refer high quality professionals or recent college graduates who you think would make great teachers to our website,http://chicagoteachingfellows.ttrack.org/, to apply.
> Our early application deadline is December 5, 2011.
>  
>  
> All students can be educated, but not all of us can be effective educators. Help Chicago Teaching Fellows find candidates with the skills and talents to have the privilege to teach the students of Chicago.
>  
> We appreciate your support of Chicago Teaching Fellows.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
>  
> Warm Regards,
