Urban Teachers aims to produce highly effective educators who empower every child through learning. Participants become career educators committed to equity and inclusivity, ensuring every student receives a great education. The organization strongly believes that access to a quality education gives young people the tools to become forces of change in their communities.
Urban Teachers prepares new teachers to succeed through a rigorous clinical training model. The centerpiece of this four-year collaborative program is a 14-month residency that candidates experience in urban schools before becoming a lead teacher. It is augmented by graduate coursework leading to a master of science in education degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Education which is completed in two years and is clinically based, allowing teachers to practice their skills immediately in the classroom. The residency is followed by three years of coaching and mentoring that aids in the development of outstanding practice in the field.
When recent graduates join Urban Teachers, they start a journey to become one of the most expert and results-oriented teachers for high needs schools. Want to learn more? Stop by this information table to speak with Northeast Recruitment Specialist Torin Peterson.
