Organization Details


The Nashville Teacher Residency is a one-year state approved EPP (Education Preparation Provider) with a mission to develop and license teachers from diverse backgrounds and experiences who honor the dignity of every student. NTR residents are paired with outstanding Mentor Teachers and gradually assume full classroom responsibilities while taking hands-on, practice-driven coursework from NTR staff at night. Residents are full-time employees of their Partner Schools, earning a salary equivalent to that of an Educational Assistant or paraprofessional.
