Match Teacher Residency: Boston
Match Teacher Residency (MTR) is a 12-month program (August through July) that fully includes all aspects of the Match Corps: Boston experience, but is designed for those who know they want to teach in an urban school following their fellowship year. The purpose of this program is to create unusually effective, rockstar rookie teachers. MTR includes the normal Match Corps: Boston load each Monday to Thursday, but it also includes specific teacher training on Fridays and Saturdays. All students enroll in the Charles Sposato Graduate School of Education.
After this year, a typical MTR then takes a full-time teaching job. The average Boston area starting salary is $44,000. While in this full-time job, MTRs enjoy additional (optional) coaching, and take one online class per semester. Then they earn a masters degree.
MTR, the Sposato Graduate School of Education, Match Corps: Boston share a common application.
