Breakthrough Houston

About Breakthrough Houston

Breakthrough Houston is looking for talented individuals who are interested in working with academically gifted middle school students from underserved families in the Greater Houston area to teach in our Summer Program. As a Breakthrough Houston teacher, you will teach classes of approximately eight to ten students, work with an experienced Instructional Coach to make sure you know the ropes, and really get a feel for what it’s like to be at the front of a classroom.

This is one of the best ways to decide if teaching is for you! The Princeton Review has ranked Breakthrough as a Top Ten summer internship, along with working at the White House and for MTV. Teach for America has noted that former Breakthrough teachers are accepted to TFA at a much higher rate than regular applicants. Plus, you will make friendships that will last a lifetime.

The base salary for a Breakthrough Houston summer teacher is $2200. If you don’t have a place to live in Houston, we can help with a home stay option.
