Teacher Residency for Rural Education is funded in part by a US Department of Education Teacher Quality Partnership Grant # U336S160019


Teaching Residents in the TRRE program work four days a week with a teaching mentor in a K-12 classroom while they earn a Master's of Education degree leading to New Hampshire teacher certification in a 15-month program. Teaching Residents complete graduate coursework from the University of New Hampshire with a cohort other teaching residents while working in the public school setting. In exchange for a commitment to teach for three years in a rural high-need partner school, Teaching Residents receive 50% discount on in-state tuition and $28,000 stipend. Upon successful completion of the requirements to earn and M.Ed. and initial teacher certification, TRRE graduates interview to be hired and become full-time paid teachers in TRRE partner schools.
A 30-hour community based internship is required during the first summer of the program.
The next Teacher Residency for Rural Education cohort will start May 2020.
