A New Kind of Teacher Program
Since receiving a start-up grant from the New Schools Venture Fund in 2009, Urban Teachers has grown steadily and sustainably. Through our higher education partner, we offer a Master of Science in Education and have welcomed nearly 2,000 aspiring educators to the program in Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth, Washington, DC, and most recently, Philadelphia. Our educators have served nearly 228,000 children in these cities. We believe that we can be most effective by committing deeply to these communities and anticipate expanding our reach in the years to come.
