Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) is a one year, full-time AmeriCorps service program that recruits talented college graduates, career changers and community members of all ages and gives them the tools to make an immediate impact in the classrooms of the Boston Public Schools (BPS). The program combines a yearlong classroom apprenticeship with targeted master’s-level coursework, offering much more than just an affordable route into teaching. BTR provides every Resident with the practical learning, hands-on experience and ongoing support essential to any successful career in teaching.
The CREST-Ed grant was developed to meet the challenges of preparing and retaining teachers for the specific demands of teaching critical subjects in high needs schools in urban and rural localities. Critical subject areas are mathematics, science, English language learners, early childhood education and special education (elementary, middle or high school).
Project Inspire combines a master’s degree with classroom experience, one-on-one mentorship and unwavering support. In just 14 months, you’ll have the qualification and confidence to embark on your teaching career in the urban classrooms of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
