The Twin Cities Teacher Collaborative (TC2) STEM Urban Teacher Residency is an innovative program designed to recruit, prepare, and support strong effective new teachers - bringing energy, ideas, and real-world experience to meet the critical challenge of increased educational achievement for all students. TC2 is a consortium of six private institutions of higher education in the Twin Cities metropolitan area - Augsburg College, Bethel University, Concordia University, Hamline University, St. Catherine University, and the University of St. Thomas. TC2 has a partnership with the Minneapolis Public Schools and Saint Paul Public Schools for the Residency program.
The TC2 Residency program will train early career scientists and mathematicians and career changers to effectively teach 5-12 STEM science and mathematics - district-identified high-need license areas.
The full-time, year-long, post-baccalaureate Residency experience integrates best practices for the preparation of highly effective educators including specialized content knowledge, cultural competence, and other critical aspects of effective teaching and learning geared to the high-needs, 21st Century, urban school setting.
