Three Rivers Education Foundation

The Three Rivers Teacher Quality Partnership is recruiting individuals with a bachelor’s degree who have never served as a teacher of record.   Participants work alongside a mentor teacher in a one-year residency while they earn a master’s degree in education and complete the licensure requirements.  

The program aims to fill math, science or special education teacher positions.

Those selected for the program will receive a one-year living-wage stipend of $55,000 to pay for expenses while enrolled in the online master’s degree program at a participating university.

About 40 percent of the residency will be dedicated to the online coursework, and 60 percent will be spent in a classroom with a teacher-mentor.

After completing their master’s degree program, participants must commit to teaching at least three years at a qualifying school that meets eligibility criteria (high poverty, free/reduced lunch, etc.)

Participants will receive support from coaches throughout the residency and throughout the three-year teaching commitment.
