The East Harlem Teaching Residency, in partnership with Hunter College School of Education and AmeriCorps, is a highly selective 14-month teacher-training and certification program that develops, supports, and certifies aspiring educators to become elementary teachers in New York.
The innovative design of the Teaching Residency builds on EHTP’s almost 60 years of experience in preparing K-12 students to succeed in college and beyond. Our residents work alongside a mentor-teacher, and support classroom instruction and operations in EHTP’s network of public charter schools—East Harlem Scholars Academies. They also lead and manage EHTP after-school classrooms for district public school students.
The Residency is designed specifically for recent college graduates and career changers who are looking for a pathway into the teaching profession. Our program attracts a cohort of individuals who are supportive, mission-driven, diverse, and passionate about transforming educational outcomes for East Harlem students.

AFTER THE RESIDENCY
The East Harlem Teaching Residency prepares aspiring teachers for full-time teaching roles at East Harlem Scholars Academies, East Harlem district schools, and the broader New York district school community. Residents will receive job placement support to help them find the best-fit role for them.
Teaching Residents have access to a variety of networks, including EHTP, East Harlem Scholars Academies, and Hunter College. Access to these organizations committed to improving students’ educational outcomes will allow Residents to build relationships with like-minded educators dedicated to serving students.
The Residency is a truly amazing program that’s designed to help us become the best teachers we can be. We are given so much support and coaching in order to build our skills and confidence as teachers. We are given chances to be in real classrooms with children and learn what that means as educators.”
