Through a model of rigorous  clinical preparation, St. Louis Teacher Residency prepares aspiring teachers who are capable of  accelerating student achievement from the moment they enter the classroom as a teacher of  record.

In the second year, candidates become a  lead teacher-of-record in their partner school while continuing to pursue their Master’s degree with  our university partner.
