Teacher Immersion Fellows (TIF) Program

What is the TIF Program?

Teach, Earn, Learn with TIF
The Teacher Immersion Fellows (TIF) Program is a partnership amongst area colleges/universities, Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES, and participating school districts that offers college students the opportunity to gain paid experience in the education field while enhancing their educational and employment opportunities throughout and following their college careers. Students of any major may apply to the program. In addition to substitute teaching responsibilities in our partner public school districts, our Fellows also take paid professional development courses to enhance their skills.
