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.
