a unique approach to prepare new teachers through an immersive residency model

every student deserves a great teacher

At Project Inspire, we deeply believe that all students deserve consistent access to a great, culturally competent teacher--one who knows them and can propel them toward a successful future. The Project Inspire teacher residency offers passionate, diverse college graduates a rigorous path toward becoming a great teacher and leader in high-need schools. The journey begins with a year-long clinical apprenticeship that prepares the "day-one ready" teacher that all students deserve.
