Memphis Teacher Residency’s Unique Approach to Fighting Educational Inequality

In our society, one of the most pressing issues related to social justice and Civil Rights is educational inequality. Too often, children are denied the opportunity to receive a quality education simply because of their zip code. However, there is hope on the horizon.

Host Andrew Bartolotta sits down with Memphis Teacher Residency’s Recruiter & STEM Camp Coordinator, Caroline O’Hare and past STEM Fellow and current MTR Resident, Simona Reid to talk about how Memphis Teacher Residency is training teachers in a unique way that prioritizes their spiritual, social, and instructional development.

During the conversation, Caroline talks about ways MTR is making significant strides in ensuring that every child has access to an excellent education, regardless of where they live while Simona discusses her time as a STEM Fellow and current MTR Resident, how MTR has personally impacted her own life and career goals, an inspiring message for hopeful educators, and more.

Caroline also talks about the upcoming Marjorie Lee Browne STEM Education Fellowship, a four-week summer internship in Memphis designed to inspire undergraduate persons of color to pursue careers in STEM education within public schools in Memphis, TN, equip fellows with a historical perspective of the Civil Rights Movement, Christian faith, and their intersection with education, and create pathways for underserved students to become scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists.
