The Seattle Teacher Residency’s mission is to accelerate student achievement through the preparation, support, and retention of a group of exceptional teachers in Seattle Public Schools whose diversity reflects the demographics of their students. The Seattle Teacher Residency follows the model of urban teacher residency programs in cities such as Boston, Chicago, and Denver. Residency programs successfully apply the medical residency model to teacher preparation. By blending classroom apprenticeship with aligned graduate-level course work and an intensive resident/mentor partnership, residencies aim to accelerate student achievement through the training, support and retention of excellent teachers.
