Job Description:

Program Overview
Boston Teacher Residency is a nationally recognized clinical teacher preparation program whose graduates support student achievement from day one and who stay in teaching, continuing to refine and improve their practice. Created in 2002 as a joint initiative between the Boston Public Schools and Boston Plan for Excellence (BPE), we designed BTR to meet the evolving needs of Boston’s children and families.

BTR, an AmeriCorps program, combines a yearlong classroom apprenticeship with targeted master’s level coursework to provide you with the hands-on experience, feedback, evaluation and ongoing post-graduate support critical to a successful career in teaching. Upon graduation, you will join a network of more than 600 teachers who are among the most effective in Massachusetts.

BTR Priority Admissions Deadline: October 30th, 2018 (noon EST). Graduating college seniors, recent graduates and career changers are encouraged to apply.
