Who We Are


We are responsible for unlocking the potential of every child in our city by relentlessly innovating in the field of teacher preparation and pursuing equitable education.

The residency program is a direct response to the challenge of the teacher shortage in Kansas City and other urban areas. In collaboration with partner schools and districts, KCTR will prepare teachers to make an immediate impact on students.
