Urban Teachers Residency participants make a four-year commitment to the program: one as a resident teacher before becoming teachers-of-record for the next three years. Urban Teachers preparation is focused on rigorous, clinically-based coursework and ongoing support. Participants receive three years of individualized coaching and are endorsed for their Standard Credential in year three after demonstration of student gains. Urban Teachers residents can be placed in Early Childhood, Elementary, Secondary Math and Secondary ELA classrooms.
Participants complete a Master of Science in Education through a partnership with Johns Hopkins University School of Education, and are dual certified in their content area and Special Education. Urban Teachers provides recruitment and selection support to identify outstanding recent college graduates and career changers.
