Dallas Teacher Residency (DTR) (www.dallastr.org) is a non-profit, teacher preparation program, which recruits aspiring career teachers, preparing them to become effective in urban schools - in order to provide all students with the opportunity to be taught and inspired by a trained professional. DTR’s residency program is patterned after a medical residency model and, drawing strengths from traditional and alternative approaches to teacher preparation, is a district-based teacher education program that pairs master’s level education content with a rigorous full-year classroom apprenticeship with trained mentor teachers in urban classrooms. During the residency year, program residents take graduate level coursework at Texas A&M University - Commerce (TAMUC), to earn both a Master’s degree in Education, in addition to their Texas Teaching license. The City Year experience is a strong indicator of success at Dallas Teacher Residency and serving a year with City Year strengthens an applicant’s application and chances for being selected as a DTR Resident.
