Company

BPE

We are an education organization operating a PreK-12 pathway of neighborhood based Teaching Academies and a city-wide network of teacher support.

Through our Teaching Academies and our nationally recognized and replicated teacher training program, we drive exceptional outcomes for Boston’s students.

We’ve  prepared more than 600 teachers for the Boston Public Schools through Boston Teacher Residency, a clinical model for training teachers. BTR operates within our two neighborhood based Teaching Academies, schools that provide a world class education for all students while preparing outstanding new teachers for successful, sustainable careers as urban educators.

Teaching Academies

Modeled after teaching hospitals, our Teaching Academies immerse aspiring teachers — residents — in the best practices of the field.

Teaching Academies are autonomous schools within Boston Public Schools that use an alternative staffing model and data driven practices to advance student learning while preparing outstanding new educators and leaders for Boston through Boston Teacher Residency.

Residents work side by side with experienced colleagues to implement research based practices, examine their impact on student learning, and refine instruction until every child is successful. We run two Teaching Academies: Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School and Dearborn STEM Academy.

In Teaching Academies, we have redesigned how educators and staff are organized, in service of student learning. Just as teaching hospitals rely on teams of professionals with differentiated roles—nurses, supervisors, interns, residents, and attending physicians—Teaching Academies are structured around teams of individuals with different expertise and experience levels who work together. Teaching teams, like medical teams, use a common and accepted system of data-driven practices and tools to work effectively and coherently towards common goals.

We align our practices, routines, and structures for adult learning to focus on student needs. As teachers investigate their practice, they make their reasoning public so that teachers, administrators, and the greater education network can learn and grow together.

As learners, all teachers respect the learning process, common misunderstandings of content, and the cognitive struggle required for deep understanding of new material.
