We all know how important one teacher can be in the life of a student.
As former teachers and administrators, we know Guest Teaching is not easy. In fact, often times it requires a hero. But our teachers will tell you that this work with children primarily in underserved communities is some of the most important and meaningful work you can do.¨¨
Our job at CSTN is to support you in this endeavor. We do this through a dedicated, professional, and reliable community, and place you in schools that are many of the highest performing public schools in the city. We've worked with these schools for many years, and because of the great individuals within our network (you), we consistently earn a reputation for having the most dedicated, reliable, and engaged guest teachers in the city.
