Program Overview

Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) is a one year, full-time AmeriCorps service program that recruits talented college graduates, career changers, and community members and gives them the tools they need to make an immediate impact in the classrooms of the Boston Public Schools (BPS).

Combining a year-long classroom apprenticeship in a BPE Teaching Academy with targeted master’s-level coursework, the program offers much more than just an affordable route into teaching. BTR provides every Teacher Resident with the practical learning, hands-on experience, and ongoing support essential to any successful career in teaching.
