Our Residents

Residency is time set aside for advanced training during the first year of our program. As an Urban Teachers resident, you get a full year to work as a co-teacher in urban classrooms under the guidance of our expert faculty, while also taking coursework relevant to your Masters. This aspect of our program is designed to help you achieve better results for students when you become their teacher. You will receive regular feedback as you develop your skills and prove your effectiveness. The residency gives you practice time in anticipation of your career as a teacher.
