Why City Year loves Boston Teacher Residency

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, Boston Teacher Residency was designed to meet the evolving needs of Boston’s children and families. As an AmeriCorps program, it combines a yearlong classroom apprenticeship with targeted master’s level coursework to provide you with the hands-on experience, feedback, evaluation and ongoing postgraduate support critical to a successful career in teaching. Upon graduation, you will join a growing network of alums—now more than 700 Boston Public School teachers.

Boston Teacher Residents support student achievement from day one and stay in teaching after graduation, continuing to refine and improve their practice. The City Year experience strengthens a candidate’s application and is a strong indicator of future success as a Boston Teacher Resident and educator.
