Urban Teachers is a four-year teacher training and certification program that works to close the achievement gap in schools by improving teacher quality and preparing a pipeline of high-performing career teachers. Educators who complete the Urban Teachers program are among the most expert and results-oriented in the nation because we provide the best teacher preparation available.
_Because of the injustices that my students face on nearly a day to day basis, I have never been more motivated to teach. Urban Teachers has challenged and encouraged me to address the internal conflicts and biases that I have, allowing me to begin to address the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of my students. Urban Teachers is set up so that I have the support to implement activism in my classroom with the coaches, mentor teachers, mentors, and Urban Teachers fellows to lean on. All these things, along with ensuring content rich and high engagement lessons, has prepared me to give the education that my students deserve.
