About This Video

Teacher residencies are the most comprehensive model of teacher preparation in the nation. Founded in 2007, the National Center for Teacher Residencies (NCTR) commits to build, scale, and sustain teacher residencies as a lever to create more equitable access into the profession for teachers of color through centering diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practices to prepare diverse, aspiring teachers.

In this webinar, NCTR will describe the components of the residency model and share the conditions that must be present to successfully implement a residency program. NCTR’s director of state and federal policy will discuss the state and federal policies that promote, seed, and sustain teacher residencies. Webinar participants will leave the webinar with a clear understanding of the residency model and actionable next steps to explore launching a residency program to address teacher shortages, diversity, quality, and retention in their communities.

Featuring:

  • Keilani Goggins, Director, Black Educators Initiative, National Center for Teacher Residencies
  • Jill Harvieux Pitner, Chief Growth Officer, National Center for Teacher Residencies
  • Courtney Rowland, Director of State and Federal Policy, National Center for Teacher Residencies
