"Baltimore City Teaching Residency recruit candidates without a background in education to become an effective teacher for the students who need them the most. This year in Baltimore, we have a shortage of Special Education and Science teachers.
Baltimore City students need and deserve creative teachers to share the wonders of Biology or Chemistry. And those students with additional learning needs could benefit greatly from the fresh-thinking and experience your school has already provided.
Baltimore City Teaching Residency trains accomplished professionals and recent college graduates to become exceptional, certified teachers for the Baltimore students who need them most. Only twelve credit hours in Biology or Chemistry (or related coursework) are needed to qualify.
Most enrollees who enter
into the Special Education program have little to no prior background in
Special Education. As a Baltimore Special Education Resident you would
be dual certified, which makes you a valuable
prospect for hiring Principals and doubles your future teaching
Special Education Residents benefit from a range of choices in classroom settings. Most BCTR Residents teach students with mild-to-moderate disabilities. In fact, students are learning the same content as their grade-level peers in a general education setting. You may work with a co-teacher, have a small group of students, or a combination of these settings.
