The Relay Residency Placement Program is Relay’s initiative to grow our country’s teaching force in number, diversity, commitment, and impact. We believe that great teachers are made, not born.
The program focuses on developing teaching talent and aims to engage future teachers with the experiences and opportunities that will lead them to pursue teaching with enthusiasm and skill. Through strategic coaching, ample practice, and a curriculum built to match classroom experiences, Residents are prepared to join the most important profession in the world. Residents spend the first year of the program in a classroom at one of our school partners working alongside a mentor teacher. In their second year, residents will lead their own class with the support of their cohort and the guidance of their Relay professors.
The Relay Teaching Residency is the best way to begin a career in teaching and earn while you learn. You’ll participate in a supportive preparation program, earn a teaching credential, complete a master’s degree, and get help finding a meaningful career in just two years — all at an extremely affordable price.
