THE ALBUQUERQUE TEACHER RESIDENCY PARTNERSHIP
The College of Education at the University of New Mexico (UNM), the Albuquerque School District (APS) and the Albuquerque Teachers Federation (ATF) have a long history of collaboration focusing on improving education for students. The on-going goal of all three organizations has been to ensure all students have equal access to high-quality teachers. UNM, APS, and ATF developed and implemented a residency pathway, the Albuquerque Teacher Residency Partnership (ATRP), to improve the preparation and retention of effective, diverse teachers for high-need schools. Elementary and Secondary Teacher Residents work with and receive intensive mentoring from APS Master Teachers.
In addition, Teacher Candidates may complete their Master's coursework through the UNM College of Education.
All ATRP Residents receive an annual stipend to support their studies.
