The Philadelphia teacher network
The Philadelphia-Area Teacher Network aims to support, encourage and inspire new teachers working in the Philadelphia Area. Since 2008, the Network has connected teachers around the city and provided school-based mentoring, regular support gatherings, workshops, and a Summer Institute. The network works in conjunction with our website to provide on-line and real-world resources for new and veteran teachers. In partnership with Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the Netter Center for Community Partnerships, and the Leonore Annenberg Teaching Fellows the network provides the following free professional learning opportunities.

The Penn GSE Teacher Education Program is a full time, 10-month, intensively school-based, master's with certification program that prepares teachers for the early elementary, middle level and secondary level classrooms, schools and communities. Our program begins in the summer, with student teachers working in the communities in which their schools are located, and then, before school begins, moving into the schools and partnering with their Classroom Mentors and Penn Mentors (often called university supervisors) to begin to enter into the life of the school. They will continue student teaching, part time in the fall,, increasing to full time in the spring term, until the end of April. So student teachers really come to know the students, parents, school and communities that feed into the school over the course of nearly a year.
