The Mastery-Relay Teaching Residency, a partnership between Mastery Charter Schools and the Relay Graduate School of Education, is the perfect opportunity for those who are looking for an innovative pathway into the teaching profession. We are seeking inspired and dynamic educators to join our team and provide a top quality education for all of our students. Mastery Schools is known as the destination of choice for high performing education professionals and offers dynamic education systems in which emerging educators can learn and grow as they serve students and families.
The Residency offers aspiring educators, including recent college graduates and career changers, a unique opportunity to receive high-quality teacher training while gradually taking on more teaching responsibility. During this two-year program, you spend your first year in a full-time support teaching position receiving mentorship and professional development from your school leaders, Relay Faculty, and our central office- based coaches to help you become an incredibly effective teacher.
The Elementary (K-5) Experience: Residents pursuing Elementary Education will get the opportunity to empower students with the foundational blocks for their academic success by implementing Mastery’s rigorous literacy and math curricula and supporting students through small-group instruction, in both push-in and pull-out settings. Through an accelerated on-ramp and frequent collaboration with skilled Special and General Education teachers, Residents will not only strengthen their students’ skills but also hone their own teaching craft!
The Middle/ Secondary (6-12) Experience: Residents pursuing Middle and Secondary Education will get the opportunity to work closely with a strong mentor teacher in their content area whose classroom will serve as their home base during their first year for their gradual on-ramp experience. Through a gradual on-ramp designed around the pillars of frequent coaching, practice opportunities, and feedback, Residents’ opportunities for growth will be limitless!
As a Relay Resident, your passion and experience is valued as you work closely with your fellow educators to create a joyful, learning community that is driven by Mastery’s mission and vision. As a Mastery team member, you will be trusted to make decisions and held accountable for critical results. You will engage in a positive and professional workplace embedded in a warm, joyful, student-centered, and welcoming school culture. After a successful first year in the Residency, participants will be prepared to transition into a full-time lead teaching position at Mastery. Apply today to make an immediate impact in the lives of our students!
