Memphis Teacher Residency
My name is David Montague and I serve as the President of the Memphis Teacher Residency(MTR). We are an urban teacher residency within the Urban Teacher Residency United(UTRU) network. We are now in our sixth year of training aspiring teachers. Fortunately, we have earned very high distinction from both the Shelby County School district and the TN Department of Education as a program that has been highly effective in providing Memphis with outstanding teachers.
I'm writing to introduce you to MTR's interactive website to help highlight the academic inequality in our nation as a means of promoting awareness, encouraging conversation, and providing geographic perspective on the educational achievement gap. This site contains a web-based national map of college readiness and median household income. Data for 17 states are presently available, and we will be adding more as data becomes available and time allows.
Also, if you thought appropriate, would you consider sharing this resource to your email audience, of which I have been a reader for several years?
I would appreciate this support in order to leverage our site for the purposes for which it was created, as well as to help MTR gain needed attention outside of Memphis in order to help in our recruiting of staff and teachers.
