  • Temple Teacher Residency is an urban teacher education program that prepares highly-motivated individuals with strong science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subject matter knowledge and diverse backgrounds to teach science and mathematics in high-need middle schools in the City of Philadelphia. TTR aims to improve STEM education opportunities and achievement of all middle school students in Philadelphia.

    Resident teachers participate in a year-long apprenticeship alongside a highly successful mentor teacher, eventually working up to taking full responsibility for the mentor teacher’s classes. Residents are in their mentor teacher’s classroom Monday-Thursday, participate in weekly professional development activities on Fridays, and take graduate-level courses some evenings and Saturdays. Residents receive a stipend and tuition award up to $20,000 for the year to help support them while they complete this intensive graduate program.
