NYU’s Teacher Residency was created in 2016 by the faculty in NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Teaching & Learning. We currently partner with school districts and charter organizations in NY, CA, FL, and CT to prepare the next generation of teachers for our partnering communities through a one year teacher residency. Participants spend a year learning to teach embedded in a school while earning a Master of Arts in Teaching degree taught by Steinhardt faculty. Coursework is delivered online and aspiring teachers are supported through intensive coaching and mentoring by NYU Steinhardt faculty and experienced teachers in our partnering school communities. The goal of NYU’s Teacher Residency is to ensure graduates are ready to be effective teachers from Day 1 in the classroom.
As the Director of Strategic Partnerships you will join a small and growing team responsible for driving the growth strategy for NYU’s Teacher Residency (NYU TR). The ideal candidate has knowledge of human capital needs in school districts or charter organizations, believes in the value of partnerships between higher education and school communities, and has experience working to support schools to find and prepare great teachers. This is a full time position that requires travel and reports to the Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships. This individual will work as a part of a newly created team to identify prospective district/charter partners, assess fit, and onboard partners into NYU TR’s partner network. Strong analytical thinking, relationship management, an entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to creating equitable K - 12 schools is required to find success in this role.
