Chicago Teacher Residency’s 2024 class gathered for the first time to connect before embarking on a new chapter in their careers. Residents met colleagues teaching across several subject areas, learning each others’ motivations and journeys to becoming teachers. Some join the cohort with experience in education as counselors or substitute teachers while others come from industries such as scientific research and airline service. With varied backgrounds, many residents shared their interest in advancing and establishing their careers through Chicago Teacher Residency’s training and certification.
Through their upcoming training, the new CTR class will continue to build camaraderie around educating, supporting and inspiring Chicago’s youth.
