Every child deserves an excellent teacher. Students in urban school districts, however, often receive the least capable ones available. Urban Teachers, a non-profit organization, seeks to change that dynamic by offering high-need schools a supply of competent educators who are ready to make a difference in student’s lives from day one. The organization does this by recruiting teaching candidates and equipping them with state-of-the-art training that weds practice and study over four years. Since 2009, Urban Teachers has welcomed over 500 aspiring teachers and expanded to 93 schools across Baltimore and Washington, DC.
