Urban Teachers Information Table

Urban Teachers is endeavoring to change the equation in urban education, offering high-need schools a supply of effective teachers who are ready to make a difference in students’ lives. Structural racism and inequality have kept generations of urban children from receiving the education they deserve. Urban Teachers believes that qualified, highly effective teachers who stay in the classroom can empower students through learning. Recent graduates hired by the organization develop the skills, hands-on experience and knowledge to ensure every child receives an equitable education.
