Every student in St. Louis deserves an excellent teacher.


Join us as we expand opportunities for our students and our city.

Today, educational inequity persists in the St. Louis region along racial and economic lines.  We believe that excellent teachers can dramatically impact the lives of the students, families, and communities that they serve.


In 2016, 72% of St. Louis public school students graduated from high school. 

12% were college-ready.


Our Approach

St. Louis Teacher Residency takes a different approach to teacher education.  As a resident, you’ll spend one year working with an experienced mentor teacher in a high-needs classroom, developing the skills you’ll need to be a leader in the classroom.  You’ll also take classes with us focused on the core competencies you’ll need to have a successful career in teaching.  By joining STLTR, you make a commitment to serve the students and families in St. Louis public schools.  Through our innovative residency model, we commit to giving you the most effective pathway into a career in urban education.
