Teaching Residents at Teachers College (TR@TC) is an 18-month long federally funded and cohort-based teacher residency program that prepares and duly certifies highly qualified aspiring teachers to teach English as a new language, math, science, special education in high needs New York City secondary public schools.
Each summer, Teaching Residents work alongside high school students from three partner schools to engage in a Global Citizens project, such as investigating the health of NYC waterways and exploring how to improve them through policy. In the summer of 2019, the program’s culminating event took place in the Smith Learning Theater, where Teaching Residents and students, supported by TR@TC alumni and undergraduate interns from John Jay College (who are considering a career in education), showcased their findings and recommendations on the main stage for family, friends, and legislators.
If you didn’t get the chance to see it live here at Teachers College, we have an archived Livestream of the 2017 Teacher as Activist: Supporting Immigrant Students in Urban Classrooms event with Drs. A. Lin Goodwin and Kevin Kumashiro.
