What We Look For


“After a few weeks of teaching on my own, I have come to realize that if it wasn’t for Urban Teachers’ approach to teacher preparation, I wouldn’t be anywhere near ready to go back into the classroom every morning. Residency year was extremely challenging, teaching on my own is possible because of it.”
