Urban Teachers is transforming urban schools by preparing highly skilled, deeply committed teachers who know how to improve outcomes for every learner. Together, they are improving outcomes for thousands of urban students each year. In year one you’ll spend 14 months training under experienced classroom teachers and our expert faculty. That includes two summer sessions and a full academic year in a school. After the residency year, you’ll take responsibility for a classroom of your own. We’ll continue to support you with a lighter load of courses (through Year 2) and one-on-one coaching (Years 2 & 3), until you become eligible for certification at the end of Year 3. Year 4 completes your commitment with Urban Teachers. Many Urban Teachers graduates assume leadership roles in their schools, such as grade level team leaders, department chairs, or instructional coaches.
