print icon

Securing a program-aligned instructional role is a requirement to enroll in Relay’s teacher programs. In New York, the following roles are program aligned:


NY Teacher Pathway - Through the Relay NY Teacher Pathway, talented and committed aspiring educators can launch a fulfilling career in teaching. The NY Teacher Pathway provides a gradual on-ramp to teaching, as candidates spend a full year embedded in the classroom of a Mentor Teacher before leading their own classroom in the second year. Through the NY Teacher Pathway, Relay students will learn from experienced faculty and a network of peers, while earning a salary, a master’s degree, and/or teacher licensure. Program-aligned job titles for the NY Teacher Pathway include Apprentice Teacher, Paraprofessional, and Co-Teacher.


Teacher of Record Pathway - Relay offers  programs that are designed to support educators in the field through graduate coursework and clinical experiences, with observation and feedback from Relay faculty with deep teaching experience. Through coursework, clinical experiences, and the support of Relay faculty and a school-based mentor teacher, Relay students will lead their own classrooms and develop the skills needed to help all children grow. They will also receive coaching and support from our team of experienced faculty to help them prepare them for state certification exams. Program-aligned job titles for the Teacher of Record Pathway include Teacher of Record/Lead Teacher.
