NCTR's mission is to grow and manage a national network of teacher residencies dedicated to closing the opportunity gap through the training, support, and retention of excellent teachers for students of color and other marginalized groups. NCTR is accelerating its own growth as it helps to build, support, and scale even greater numbers of high-performing teacher residencies. --Core ValuesNCTR is transforming teacher preparation nationwide to ensure all children have access to an effective teacher.
