The Achievement First Teacher-in-Residence Program

As a teacher-in-residence at Achievement First, you’ll be someone who isn’t afraid to work hard, or give endless love.

Whether this is your first job or your second career, the time is now. Take the leap, and join us.

About the Program

We know the first year of teaching can be incredibly challenging. That’s why we’ve created a program that pairs those new to the teaching field with a team of dedicated supports, coaches, and exemplary teachers from which to learn. The Teacher-in-Residence (TIR) program is a teaching opportunity designed specifically for recent top college graduates, or others with little or no teaching experience, who want to start a career in education.

The TIR program provides a one-year pathway into a career as a teacher at Achievement First. During the course of a 12-month residency, teachers-in-residence receive high quality professional development, work alongside our strongest teachers, and gain hands-on experience in the classroom through co-teaching and small group instruction. TIRs gain increasing responsibility for classroom instruction throughout the year, and successful TIRs end the year prepared to be lead teachers.

All Teachers-in-Residence are also on the path to earning a state teaching certification, which is subsidized by our partnership with Relay Graduate School.
