MATCH Teacher Residency–a highly innovative, one-year teacher residency program – hiring for 2012.

The following was received recently in the  Career Services Office. Stay tuned for more opportunities in Education.

Do you want to be an unusually effective first year teacher in a high-poverty charter school?

If so, you should consider MATCH Teacher Residency–a highly innovative, one-year teacher residency program.

Basically, we give recent college graduates one year of incredibly intense training designed to make them unusually effective rookie teachers. We then help them find positions in high-need schools, and continue to support them as they begin their careers in the classroom.

What sets MTR apart from other teacher prep programs? 1) We’re prescriptive, like a sports coach or piano teacher; you learn and practice very specific “Teacher Moves.” 2) Trainees are specifically being prepared to teach in certain charter schools with a track record of “turning around” low-performing kids. 3) We have a very particular approach, which involves building relationships 1-on-1 with kids and parents, then using those relationships to run a tight ship in class, enforcing rules consistently, and pushing/demanding a LOT from our kids.

MTR is no different from the MATCH Corps (our full-time tutoring program) from Monday to Thursday. However, unlike MATCH Corps, MTRs want to go on to become full-time teachers in high-poverty, “No Excuses” charter schools. So on Fridays and Saturdays, MTRs learn about the nuts and bolts of teaching, do tons of practice, and get a lot of coaching.

We’re especially proud of our brand new elementary school, MATCH Community Day, which specifically serves students who speak a language other than English at home.  MATCH Teacher Residents have the option to serve at MATCH Community Day, or our previously established High School or Middle School.  For more information on MATCH Community Day, have a look at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGUV8Jbeu-c

Does MTR work? Yes—check out this study to see how MTR trained teachers tend to outperform other rookie (and second year) teachers:
