On top of the excellent teacher preparation and having the tuition paid for the graduate-level degree, RTR provides a small additional stipend (generally around $5,000). Secondary math and science residents receive an additional stipend of approximately $4,000.
We provide tutoring support for the Praxis and VCLA teacher licensure tests and pay for residents to take each required licensure test at least one time.
Another perk of RTR is the professional network residents develop. Throughout the residency year and into the teaching career, RTR residents and alumni develop strong professional relationships with one another, the mentors they work with, and school and district leadership.
