MATCH Teacher Residency, in Boston offers recent college graduates one year of intense training designed to make them unusually effective rookie teachers. We then help them find positions in high-need schools, and continue to support them as they begin their careers in the classroom.

Do you know a few Geography students who might want to teach in the inner-city, and who have demonstrated unusual grit and determination? If so, could you please send me their emails, or perhaps forward the following blurb along to them?
We’re especially proud of our brand new elementary school, MATCH Community Day, which specifically serves students who speak a language other than English at home. MATCH Teacher Residents have the option to serve at MATCH Community Day, or at our previously established High School or Middle School.
