Description/Responsibilities: 
Do you want to be an unusually effective first year teacher in a high-poverty charter school? If so, you should consider Match Teacher Residency, a highly innovative, one-year teacher training program. Basically, we give college graduates one year of incredibly intense training designed to make them unusually effective rookie teachers. We then help them find teaching positions in high-need schools, and continue to support them as they begin their careers in the classroom. What sets MTR apart from other teacher prep programs? 1) We’re prescriptive, like a sports coach or piano teacher; you learn and practice very specific “Teacher Moves.” 2) Trainees are specifically being prepared to teach in charter schools with a track record of “turning around” low-performing kids. 3) We have a very particular approach, which involves building relationships 1-on-1 with kids and parents, then using those relationships to run a tight ship in class, enforcing rules consistently, and expecting a lot from our students. MTR is no different from Match Corps: Boston, our full-time tutoring program, from Monday to Thursday. However, unlike regular Corps members, MTRs want to go on to become full-time teachers in high-need, “No Excuses” charter schools. So on Fridays and Saturdays, MTRs learn about the nuts and bolts of teaching, get tons of practice, and receive in-depth coaching. MTRs also pursue a Masters of Effective Teaching Degree from our brand-new, in-house grad school: The Charles Sposato Graduate School of Education. For more information on the new Masters degree component of MTR, have a look at: http://www.matcheducation.org/match-teacher-residency/sposato-graduate-school-education. As mentioned above, Match Teacher Residents also serve in Match Corps: Boston, our one-of-a-kind yearlong tutoring fellowship. The Match Corps program began in 2004 and is the first of its kind in the nation. The Corps is a group of 135 top recent college graduates who work one-on-one with six to eight Match High School, Middle School or Match Community Day School students each day for an entire academic year. Corps members live together in apartments near the Middle School and Elementary School and in a dorm on the top floor of the High School. All three schools are open-admission charter public schools in Boston, MA. This full-time service year program is designed to fully close the academic Achievement Gap between minority students and their non-minority peers, one student at a time.
