Who We Want
CMS Teaching Residents come from all corners of the city and beyond—from paraprofessionals and substitute teachers who already work in our classrooms; to recent college graduates looking to build a career in Charlotte; to experienced professionals from other fields who want to help shape the next generation of leaders and innovators. They’re united by three core values:
- BELIEF in our students: Residents believe all students can learn and achieve at high levels, regardless of the challenges they might face outside the classroom.
- DETERMINATION to reach goals: Faced with challenges, residents model the grit and persistence their students will need to overcome obstacles and stay on the path to success in college or a career.
- PROVEN ABILITY to inspire change: Residents can rally students and families around ambitious learning goals.
We train residents to work in the grades and subject areas where they’re needed most. For the 2018-19 school year, we’re recruiting for elementary grades and for secondary math.
To be eligible for the Residency, you must hold a bachelor’s degree, meet all legal requirements to work in the United States, have an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.7, and plan to take all state-required certification tests. The Residency is currently recruiting for general elementary, middle school math, and high school math teachers. Complete your application and become a candidate today!
