State Board of Education salutes Boston Teacher Residency

The Massachusetts Board of Education held its monthly meeting today at the Richard J. Murphy K-8 School in Dorchester to highlight the Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) program as a model for new teacher preparation and training. Residents participate in a 13-month program involving both coursework and extensive classroom experience with a veteran teacher. BTR Director Jesse Solomon led a presentation about the program along with Principal Mary Russo and Murphy School teachers who are BTR graduates and mentors. Pictured here are (back row, left to right) Jonathan Redden, 4th grade teacher; Glenda Cresto, BTR site director; Jesse Solomon; (front row, left to right) Edna Keefe, 2nd grade teacher; Caitlin Hollister, 3rd grade teacher; and Jessica Alter, 6th grade teacher.
