This podcast episode is all about an innovative teacher recruitment program in our area. If you know of someone who has thought of making teaching a second career, or perhaps a current undergrad student who is thinking of pursuing a master's degree, or a CCPS teacher who would make a powerful mentor...please share this podcast with them! Special guest Kim McKnight, Director of RTR-Petersburg and RTR-Chesterfield at Virginia Commonwealth University, shares the scope of the Richmond Teacher Residency, a program that recruits, trains, and supports teachers for high-needs and hard-to-staff schools. Hear the stories of Ettrick Elementary staff and teachers who have been participants in the program as residents and mentor teachers.

A special thanks to all the CCPS educators who opened their classrooms to share their experience. They are truly lifting up our community one classroom at a time.
