The New York City Teaching Residency program is recruiting talented, committed individuals to become effective teachers who dedicate themselves to raising student achievement and driving change as part of a school turnaround strategy in New York City's lowest performing schools.

Unlike most teacher preparation programs where participants may only spend a few weeks in a classroom before they become full-time teachers, Residents learn the essentials of great teaching under the guidance of an experienced mentor teacher while fully immersed in a NYC public school community for one school year. Through this school-embedded approach, Residents will gain the skills needed to become effective teachers who are prepared to drive change and turn around the performance of New York City's lowest-performing district public schools. Residents will also participate in a subsidized master's degree program through St. John̢۪s University that is tailored to support their immediate work in the classroom and lay the foundation for a career in teaching.

The NYC Teaching Residency is looking for individuals from a wide range of personal and professional backgrounds who want to make a difference in New York City public schools. Through the NYC Teaching Residency program, you can use your experience, knowledge, and achievements to positively affect the lives of students.

We are currently recruiting candidates to train to teach English, math, science, or social studies at the secondary level for grades 7-12. To determine your eligibility to teach these subject areas, please visit the NYC Teaching Residency website at http://www.nycteachingresidency.org.

NYC Teaching Residents will benefit from:

  • A year-long Immersion in a NYC public school. Residents will work alongside an experienced Mentor Teacher in a NYC public school during the 2011-2012 school year.

  • A Subsidized Master of Science Degree in Adolescent Education from St. John’s University.

  • Financial support during the residency year including a Teacher's Assistant salary and health benefits. The salary amount during the residency year is subject to an agreement between the local teacher's union and the NYC Department of Education and will be a minimum of $22,500.

  • Robust support from experienced educators who will provide training, guidance, and ongoing feedback to support Residents' development as new teachers.

  • The NYC Teaching Residency is now accepting applications for the August 2011 program. The priority deadline to apply is May 9, 2011.

    Applications are reviewed and interviews are granted on a rolling basis; therefore, it is to your advantage to submit your application as soon as possible.
