2,000 teachers who have helped transform city schools. Despite recent
progress, the need remains great more than a third of students still do
not graduate on schedule. Principals and district officials appreciate
Residents talent and trust they will continue playing a key role in
ensuring that Baltimore students catch up to their peers.
Resident support is radically simple: focused practice on key skills,
knowledge, and mindsets to get new teachers off to a strong start. Where
traditional teacher preparation leaves little time for hands-on

teaching experience and focused practice on core skills, such as reflecting
on students values, experiences, and ambitions to create opportunities for
students to see themselves in challenging content that will prepare them
