RTR prepares teachers in a different way than the traditional model. Residents in our program spend an entire school year with a mentor teacher, working alongside them in a high-needs school. As the school year progresses, the resident gradually takes on more teaching responsibility. Over the course of the year, residents also complete their VCU degree in education.
The outcome? Residents who are ready to step into the classroom as impactful teachers from day 1. Residents who are ready to take student learning to the next level. Residents who are ready to lift up communities — one classroom at a time.
