Why hire a University of Memphis Teacher Candidate?

Because they graduate from the University of Memphis’ Ready2Teach Program

Curriculum focuses on Common Core Standards, Formative Assessment, Differentiated Instruction/Assessment, Integration of Technology  & Reality-Based Problem Solving.  Our curriculum is practitioner focused and reflects the real world of teaching.

Yearlong Residency begins when our Partnership Schools begin not when University Classes begin.  Our teacher candidates experience in-service week and the first week students begin school.  Their teaching is formally observed a minimum of 13 times during the course of the Residency. Our candidates are assessed using district assessment instruments.

Partnerships have been developed so our Candidates are placed for one academic year with a PreService Instructive Mentor (PIM) that has demonstrated a positive impact on student achievement and has scored either a 4 or 5 on the teacher evaluation system used in their district.  Our candidates learn how to teach from the best teachers.

edTPA, a nationally scored performance assessment modeled after the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, is a graduation requirement.  Nationally trained scorers from other states assess our candidates’ teaching skills.
