The Teacher Residency Program at CMCSS provides a pathway to teaching for those interested in a non-traditional approach to a degree or certification.

Teacher Residents are educational assistants who contribute to excellence by providing instructional and non-instructional support to students while learning best practices for a career in education from an outstanding CMCSS educator.

CMCSS has partnered with colleges and universities in the surrounding area, including Austin Peay State University, Nashville State Community College, and Lipscomb University.

Residents will incur no expenses for tuition or textbooks. During this time, residents will also serve as full-time Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS) employees at a Title I school as teacher residents/educational assistants.
