The residency year begins in the middle of July after residents completed their 8-week internship in our Partner Schools. Residents will meet their mentor teachers, get to know the NTR staff and their cohort, and begin work in their assigned Partner School. Here’s an overview of what the rest of the residency looks like:
*Hardship Loan for Residents with Dependents: We know that even with the minimum resident stipend of $25,000 schools pay, the NTR year can be a tough one financially. We’re excited to announce a new program we’ve developed to help make that a little easier for residents with children. At the beginning of the school year, any resident with children will be eligible to receive a low-interest loan of up to $5,000 that will begin being repaid in December of your first year teaching. We hope that it will make the year a little easier for those residents who are coming to us with families.
NTR is excited to have two partnerships with local, outstanding graduate schools of education. Through these partnerships, NTR graduates can continue their educational studies by pursuing one of two discounted Master’s degrees that are good fits for their career paths.
