Capital Teaching Resident for School Year 2018-19

Organizational Overview:
The Capital Teaching Residency is a nationally recognized, highly selective teacher training program that provides a pathway for new teachers to develop into outstanding educators prepared to serve in high-need schools in Washington, D.C.
Residents make a commitment to teach for a minimum of three years in the District. During their first year, Residents are provided the opportunity to obtain their teacher licensure and train in Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Math, Science, Social Studies, or English Language Arts classrooms. Residents have the opportunity to train and work alongside results-driven educators and administrators who are committed to students’ success. Through our gradual release model, Residents are set up for success by becoming an integral part of the school community and gaining more and more responsibility in their classroom over time. Throughout this residency, Residents are supported as they develop into skilled educators through consistent work with a highly-effective mentor teacher, focused professional development coursework, coaching and daily practice perfecting their skills in a real classroom. Residents commit to two additional years of teaching beyond their residency year at KIPP DC or at one of our partner public charter schools across the District.

In addition to earning their certification, Early Childhood and Elementary Residents have the opportunity to earn an accelerated one year master’s degree from Relay Graduate School of Education in year three of their commitment with discounted tuition. Secondary Residents all earn a Master of Arts in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education in year two of their commitment free of charge if their 3-year commitment is completed.

KIPP DC is a non-profit network of high-performing, college-preparatory public charter schools in Washington, D.C.  Our sixteen schools and Learning Center recruit and educate over 5,700 students on six campuses in the city’s most educationally underserved communities. At KIPP DC, we empower students to access opportunities that lead to a choice-filled life. Highly skilled teachers and leaders, more time in school, a rigorous college preparatory-curriculum, and a strong culture of achievement and support help our students climb the mountain to and through college and a choice-filled life. As a Capital Teaching Resident, you could play an active role in our mission!
