The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System will hold informational sessions for the community for those interested in participating in the Teacher Residency Pathways. Applications will open on November 16 for the next set of teacher resident programs.

Those interested in pursuing a degree or certification in education can attend one of two sessions.

On Tuesday, November 16, at 5:30 pm, leaders in the Teacher Residency Program will discuss the Elementary Level Teacher Residency. This program will allow those who do not currently hold a bachelor’s degree to pursue a degree and license to teach elementary and special education through a three-year program. Residents will take courses at Nashville State Community College and Austin Peay State University. Selected candidates will also work as CMCSS educational assistants throughout the program.

On Thursday, December 2, at 5:30 pm, interested candidates will learn about the Lipscomb Teacher Residency (LTR) and Lipscomb Middle Teacher Residency (LMTR) programs available through a partnership with Lipscomb University. Interested applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree.

Those who wish to pursue a career in elementary education (K-5) will learn about the one-year program where residents earn their teaching certification. Those who want to earn their master’s degree will gather information on the one-and-a-half-year program that pursues the degree and certification, allowing candidates to teach middle school math, English, or high school math.

If you have ever considered a career in education, the Teacher Residency Program allows you to pursue a dream with no out-of-pocket expenses.

Due to limited parking and space, the meeting is exclusively reserved for interested candidates.
