What Does TR@TC's Timeline Look Like?

Start in January

In-person Coursework & Fieldwork

Students begin the program in mid-January. Once enrolled, students take 3-4 courses for their respective certification programs during their first term.

They also participate in an additional fieldwork course that prepares them for the residency experience that starts in September. This allows students (whom we call Teaching Residents) the opportunity for additional context by visiting public schools and working 1:1 with students.

May through August

 Intensive Summer Institute & Mentor Pairings

During this time, students take 2-4 courses from mid-May through mid-August and get paired with their Mentor Teacher by visiting classrooms in May and June.

After being matched, students and their Mentor Teacher are paired with a Residency Supervisor, thus forming what we call a "triad." 

Together, triads attend our week-long orientation in early August to prepare for the residency.

Residency and Integrating Seminar Begins

Students spend four days per week co-teaching and co-planning with their Mentor Teacher. Simultaneously, their Residency Supervisor will conduct observations and provide continuous feedback.  Supervisors provide observations twice a month, a midterm, and a final evaluation of the Resident’s teaching skills for both the fall and the spring semesters.  

One day per week, Residents meet as a cohort to share knowledge, skills, and practical experiences.

Students continue with their required coursework for their respective certification programs, taking 2-4 additional courses each semester.

Residency & Most Coursework Ends

Students complete their residency in June and prepare for their new roles as teachers of record in NYC public schools.

Some students may need to complete 1-2 final courses through mid-August or through the fall semester.

Start Teaching & Receive Induction Support

During their first two years of teaching, Induction Mentors support our alums with individualized support. Alums are matched and paired with Induction Mentors who visit their classrooms to assist them with curriculum development, lesson planning, classroom management, and more.

Our students agree to serve as teachers of record in high-need schools in New York City for a minimum of three years.
