Newton Teacher Residency Program Featured in The Atlantic PDF Print E-mail
The Newton Public Schools have been training and licensing high school teachers since 2007 through an innovative program called the Newton Teacher Residency. Designed and run entirely by teachers and administrators at the city's two high schools, the Residency program recently formed a partnership with Lesley University to provide Master's degrees in Education, and was favorably mentioned in an article in the Atlantic Magazine's online edition. 
 
The partnership with Lesley will allow students in the Newton Teacher Residency to pursue a Master's Degree for a discounted rate, earning course credit for work done in the residency program. Lesley already has similar arrangements for middle and elementary level teachers in other school districts, and adding a high school program in Newton was an excellent fit. The residency program will benefit from having access to the University's resources, and by being able to offer the Master's degree option to license candidates who want it. 
 
Teacher residencies are gaining attention nationwide as an excellent way to give prospective teachers the practical training they need to succeed in the classroom, and often at a lower cost than traditional programs. Newton Teacher Residency was held up as an example in a recent article in the Atlantic Magazine's online edition titled "There's a Cheaper, More Effective Way to Train Teachers."
Newton Public Schools continues to support top quality teaching and learning, as well as policy innovation in public education.
