Urban Teachers, formerly named Urban Teacher Center, was founded in 2009 to solve a critical challenge in urban education: new teacher quality.

We built a break-the-mold teacher preparation program from the ground up to ensure every teacher would get the experiences and support they need to produce results with students.

We began in two of the highest-need districts in the nation: Baltimore and DC. Since 2010, we’ve welcomed more than 680 aspiring teachers for district and charter schools in both cities. Now we're also in Dallas/Fort Worth, and soon we will expand to additional cities.

Urban Teachers will continue to provide urban students with the high-quality education they deserve by preparing a great teacher, every time.
