Job Details

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.
 

We are still accepting applications on a rolling basis for the 2022-23 program year.  Graduating college seniors, recent graduates and career changers are encouraged to apply.

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.
