About Boston Teacher Residency

Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) was founded as a partnership of BPE and the Boston Public Schools with a mission to prepare excellent teachers for Boston’s children. Since graduating its first class in 2004, BTR and its network of graduates have helped spearhead a new movement in education reform — developing teachers in the areas of highest need, reversing trends in teacher retention, and receiving positive feedback from administrators across the city.

BTR has been recognized as a national model of teacher education by President Obama, the federal Teacher Quality Partnership grant program, and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education’s Blue Ribbon Panel report on quality clinical preparation. The program was named one of six finalists in the Innovations in American Government Award sponsored by the Ash Center at Harvard University.

As a co-founder of Urban Teacher Residency United, BTR serves as a model for other teacher residency programs and is leading the way nationally in improving how teachers are educated. More.
