FirstLine Schools is currently looking for talented, passionate Relay Residents at our K-8 schools. Rather than carrying a full classroom load on their own, Residents spend the year developing their teaching practice through a variety of planning and teaching responsibilities and professional development opportunities through their resident advisor.
Relay residency details:
In the first year of the Residency, participants will be hired to work full time as Residents at a FirstLine school where they will help increase student achievement and maintain and support school-level systems. Residents will receive weekly Deliberate Practice sessions from Relay GSE’s expert faculty and additional training in proven, powerful teaching techniques. Gradually, over the course of the first academic year, Residents will take on more teaching responsibilities as their skills and confidence develop. After their first year in the program, Residents will be prepared to transition into a full-time teaching position a FirstLine campus in their second year should a role be available. Residents will continue to receive coaching and support as they serve as the teacher of record.
Throughout the two-year program, Residents will be enrolled as graduate students at Relay GSE and will take master’s-level courses that complement their roles as new teachers. Relay GSE’s curriculum is designed to teach new educators how to manifest high academic expectations, and develop rigorous, data-driven lessons while caring deeply for their students. The Relay GSE Teaching Residency will lead to a culminating understanding of what it means – and what it takes – to be an effective classroom teacher.
Successful graduates of the Residency will receive their teaching certification (after year 1) and master’s degree (after year 2) from Relay GSE. Upon completion, Residents will be able to demonstrate pedagogical mastery and have a clear pathway into a job, after receiving a full-time salary and benefits for the duration of the program.
