Pioneering a New Model of Teacher Training

NLU has an understanding of the work that needs to be done in Chicago Public Schools to ensure all students receive a quality education. And we believe part of the solution is to provide our students with enhanced teacher training.

The concept behind NLU's residency model is similar to that of how physicians are trained. For a full year, while taking their graduate classes, the teachers also intern in a classroom with a mentor and supervisors, to ensure they are getting the training they need to succeed once they graduate.
