After Graduation: Want to be a Teacher?

29 Nov

Have you ever thought about becoming a teacher?

Capital Teaching Residency is a teacher training program located in Washington DC that seeks college graduates who are interested in long-term careers in teaching and education and have a passion for working with underserved populations.  The program was created through a partnership between KIPP DC and another high-performing DC charter school, E.L. Haynes.

Knowing how critical teachers are when it comes to student success, the program trains outstanding individuals to become skilled educators through a year of residency in which they experience intensive professional development, consistent work with an excellent mentor teacher, and daily practice perfecting their skills in a real classroom. After completing their residency, CTR graduates serve as lead teachers in their own classrooms the following two years.

The second deadline to apply is January 20, 2011. Capital Teaching Residency looks forward to receiving your application!
