How We Do It

NCTR is the only organization in the nation dedicated to developing, launching, supporting, and accelerating the impact of teacher residency programs.

By preparing a new kind of teacher inside the classroom – providing the practical learning, the hands-on experience and the support network they need to be effective right away – NCTR and its teacher residency program partners are building a real movement for education reform from the ground up.
