Boston Teacher Residency -- Resident

Boston Plan for Excellence

About the organization

BPE's mission is to drive exceptional outcomes for all students by developing great teachers and great schools. For three decades, BPE has devised solutions to the toughest challenges faced by Boston’s students and teachers by weaving together expertise in teacher training and school development. We believe ambitious teaching requires not only effective teachers, but also systems that support great teaching and methods for continuous improvement. We have prepared over 700 teachers for Boston's public schools through the nationally recognized and replicated Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) program, and we have pioneered scalable, cutting edge data tools and whole school improvement strategies. We also created the Dudley Promise Corps (DPC) to leverage the power of national service to expand learning time, engage families, and provide extra support to students in the Dudley neighborhood.


BTR prepares teachers for:

(1) Elementary (grades 1-5)
(2) English (grades 6-12)
(3) Math (grades 6-12)
(4) Computer Science (grades 6-12)
(5) General Science (grades 6-9)
(6) Biology (grades 9-12)
(7) Chemistry (grades 9-12)
(8) Physics (grades 9-12

BTR is a clinical teacher preparation program whose graduates support student achievement from day one and who stay in teaching, continuing to refine and improve their practice. Created in 2002 as a joint initiative between the Boston Public Schools and BPE, we designed BTR to meet the evolving needs of Boston’s children and families.

BTR, an AmeriCorps program, combines a yearlong classroom apprenticeship with targeted master’s level coursework to provide you with the hands-on experience, feedback, evaluation and ongoing post-graduate support critical to a successful career in teaching. Upon graduation, you will earn an M.Ed, Massachusetts Initial Teaching License, and join a network of more than 700 teachers who are among the most effective in Massachusetts.
