The Kansas City Teacher Residency is a four-year program for college graduates and professionals who want to become exceptional teachers and transform the minds of our urban youth. Through the program, residents will be paired with mentor teachers, be immersed in rigorous coursework that leads to a master’s degree and earn teacher certification. After the residency year, program graduates will be ready to effectively lead their own classrooms in high-need public schools.
The KCTR Impact Associate VISTA member will build the capacity of KCTR by developing and implementing communications strategy and brand awareness programs to support teacher development in Kansas City, MO. This VISTA position will support KCTR’s efforts to train and retain urban teachers in high-needs KC communities. Currently in Kansas City, teacher retention remains to be a major concern for urban schools and urban students are historically underperforming compared to their suburban counterparts. As a result, the VISTA will help place committed and diverse teachers in urban classrooms with the goal of increasing academic achievement for the students of Kansas City.
