NCTR Network

We are comprised of members who operate teacher residency programs committed to disrupting historic educational inequities and advancing the teacher residency movement.

Individually, teacher residency programs have tremendous impact in their community. Collectively, as a Network, they demonstrate the power of the teacher residency model as the standard for teacher preparation nationwide.

What is the NCTR Network?

NCTR brings together Network members to collaborate and exchange best practices to continuously improve their programs and influence teacher preparation in their own communities as well as regionally and nationally. Our Network members are changemakers, disruptors, and passionate leaders who believe, like us, that every U.S. student deserves an effective, diverse, and culturally responsive educator. 

As Network members, you will engage in professional development, working groups, consulting sessions and other programming opportunities that support preparation and retention of teachers of color serving students of color and students from low-income backgrounds.
