Who We Want

CMS Teaching Residents come from all over—from paraprofessionals and substitute teachers who already work in classrooms; to recent college graduates looking to build a career in Charlotte; to experienced professionals from other fields who want to help shape the next generation of leaders and innovators. They’re united by three core values:

  • BELIEF in our students: Residents believe all students can learn and achieve at high levels, regardless of the challenges they might face outside the classroom.
  • DETERMINATION to reach goals: Faced with challenges, residents model the grit and persistence their students will need to overcome obstacles and stay on the path to success in college or a career.
  • PROVEN ABILITY to inspire change: Residents can rally students and families around ambitious learning goals.


To be eligible for the Residency, you must hold a bachelor’s degree, meet all legal requirements to work in the United States, have an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.7, and plan to take all state-required certification tests.

This year, the Residency is recruiting teachers for teaching positions in the following areas:

  • Elementary
  • High school math
  • Middle school math
  • High school science
  • Middle school science
  • Middle school English language arts
