Who We Are

East Harlem Teaching Residency

The East Harlem Teaching Residency, in partnership with Hunter College of Education, is grounded in anti-racist teaching practices. We believe in culturally responsive teaching, learning and care at our school sites. EHTR aims to serve as an agent of change and prepare our residents to enable scholars to effect change, challenge the status quo, and thrive in the world around them. Furthermore, as staff members, we face our own racial identities and conscious and unconscious biases. 

Hunter College School of Education

Hunter was New York City’s first teacher training program, founded in 1870, and to this day carries on a proud tradition of achievement and commitment to preparing teachers, counselors and administrators in over 40 specializations who make a difference in the lives of children, adolescents and consumers in communities throughout New York City and beyond.  The Hunter College School of Education is dedicated to the preparation of deeply thoughtful, knowledgeable and highly effective teachers, administrators and counselors.

The Work and Why it Matters

The East Harlem Teaching Residency, an EHTP program, in partnership with Hunter College School of Education, is an innovative, cohort-based teacher-training pathway for recent college graduates and career changers that develops, supports, and certifies aspiring educators to become inclusive learning teachers for East Harlem Scholars Academies and the greater East Harlem community. The program aims to improve educational outcomes for East Harlem students and increase the number of highly effective teachers serving East Harlem.
