BOSTON: Match Education
Match Teacher Residency is a two-year teacher-training program leading to licensure and a master's degree from the Sposato Graduate School of Education and Match Charter Public School. The program prepares residents to be effective rookie teachers in high-performing, urban schools. As full-time Match Corps members, first-year residents attend graduate school and participate in simulated and student teaching sessions, receiving individual feedback. In their second year, residents find placements in high-performing, urban schools in Boston or nationally, complete distance-learning classes, and receive additional coaching. As of September 2017, one GT alumnae has placed at Match.
Average salary: $15K stipend, AmeriCorps education award upon completion of service year; $9K tuition for master's degree is not charged until resident has a full-time teaching role

The Match Associate Teacher Program is a program for teacher candidates with 0-1 years of teaching experience. Match Associate Teachers (MATs) are placed on grade-level (K-5th) or subject level (6th-12th) teams in Match Public Charter Schools for an intensive, year-long apprenticeship. Throughout the year, our associate teachers are coached and mentored by leaders and teachers at Match and slowly take on more classroom responsibilities. MATs are also enrolled in the Sposato Graduate School of Education (SGSE) during their associate year to improve their teaching and planning expertise with the goal of becoming lead teachers in Match schools the following year.
Average salary: $30K, benefits, teacher certification, job placement assistance
