Who Our Students Need
Baltimore City Teaching Residency provides an accelerated pathway into teaching for accomplished professionals and recent college graduates who aren’t yet certified as educators but possess the dedication and content knowledge to teach in some of Baltimore’s highest-need schools.
You may have built a successful career, and now wish to give back as a teacher. You could be an accomplished recent graduate who wants to share your passion for learning with Baltimore’s students. Whatever your background, you believe that every student can achieve at a high-level and will do whatever it takes to help them get there.
We are currently seeking outstanding candidates to teach critical-need subjects, including Science, Math, English, Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education and Special Education.
Benefits of Teaching in Baltimore
Trusted Program. Since 2002, the Baltimore City Teaching Residency has prepared more than 2,000 teachers who have helped transform city schools. Despite recent progress, the need remains great – more than a third of students still do not graduate on schedule. Principals and district officials appreciate Residents’ talent and trust they will continue playing a key role in ensuring that Baltimore students catch up to their peers.
Classroom-Centered Preparation: Resident support is radically simple: focused practice on key skills, knowledge, and mindsets to get new teachers off to a strong start. Where traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on skill-building, our innovative preparation is centered around actual teaching experience and focused practice on core skills, such as reflecting on students’ values, experiences, and ambitions to create opportunities for students to see themselves in challenging content that will prepare them for success.
Certification that Counts: We hold the highest standards for certification of any program in the country. Residents are recognized not simply as certified teachers, but as having a proven track record of classroom success.
Full Salary and Benefits: While pursuing certification, Residents work as full-time teachers in the Baltimore City Public Schools district and earn a full teacher’s salary plus comprehensive benefits. Once hired, you will be a full-time employee of Baltimore City Public Schools and will earn the same starting salary as any other first-year teacher in the district . You will start as teacher of record at the beginning of the 2019-20 school year.
