We build residencies for teachers of color, and advise districts and states. How can we help you?

Residents train as part of a cohort — a peer group that provides ongoing support and collaborative learning throughout the residency year and beyond. At the beginning of the school year, groups of residents are placed in high-need, high-functioning, urban public schools for their apprenticeship experience. Residents also complete their coursework as a cohort.

Before the school year begins, residents are matched with an experienced teacher who specializes in mentoring residents based on their content area and grade level. Residents start the school year in the classroom with their mentoring teacher before students arrive, then co-teach four days per week throughout the year taking on increasing levels of responsibility. Performance-based assessments are conducted throughout the year, and residents receive formal and informal feedback from their mentor teachers, residency program staff, principals, and other support staff.

In addition to their hands-on work in the classroom, residents engage in master’s-level education coursework designed to inform and enrich the apprenticeship experience. This deep blend of theory and practice makes the residency model a unique route into teaching, helping participants draw meaningful connections between their daily classroom work and the latest in education theory and research.

Residents complete this coursework and participate in seminar, typically one evening and one full day per week. In the spring, residents begin interviewing for full-time positions in a high-need school in the district. Residents graduate from the program after the end of the school year and go on to become the teacher of record at a hiring school. Throughout the first year of teaching, residents receive ongoing induction support from content and instructional coaches.
