26 Jan Apply for the 2018-19 Residency
It’s a well-known fact that our nation is experiencing a teacher shortage and that Kansas City is no exception. Kansas City Teacher Residency is responding to the need by recruiting, developing, and placing mission oriented individuals who want to make a deep commitment to working in high need urban schools in Kansas City.
For the past two years, KCTR has brought new educators to the profession through our Residency and Graduate programming and the 2018-19 academic year will be no different. In fact, not only are we recruiting another cohort but we are maximizing our impact by increasing the number of individuals that are admitted to the 2018-19 Residency.
If you or someone you know is passionate about equitable education for all students and has a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university, then he or she can apply to the 2018-19 Residency.
The first step to applying is submitting an online application. The online application is available on our website now through February 23rd. Following the initial application stage are two essay prompts and a phone interview and upon successful completion of those stages, eligible candidates will be invited to the final stage of the admissions process known as Selection Day. Selection Day will take place on March 8th, 2018 and will include an in person interview and teaching demonstration, among other components. Programming will begin Summer 2018.
Kansas City Teacher Residency is committed to our mission and wants to hear from you if you are considering teaching in Kansas City.
