Do you want to teach and transform the lives of children in Chicago’s high-poverty schools? AUSL seeks talented, committed individuals who are passionate about urban education for the Chicago Teacher Residency, a post-graduate program in education. This intensive 12-month, full-time, paid training program combines teacher preparation, certification, and a Master's degree to give Residents the tools they need to dramatically improve student achievement in Chicago’s high-poverty, chronically failing schools.

After the training year, graduates commit to teach in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) for at least four years.

As an AUSL Chicago Teacher Residency resident, you will receive:

● A full school year of intensive urban teacher training: Work four days a week in the classroom of an experienced Mentor teacher, at an AUSL teacher training CPS school.

● A Master’s degree and Illinois teaching certification: Earn a Master of Arts in Teaching from National Louis University and your full Illinois Initial teaching certification in just one year. If you are already certified to teach, we offer a Master of Education in Urban Education.
● An affordable route to teaching: Receive financial support for your training year: a $30,000 salary plus a $2,775 AmeriCorps Education Award voucher (pending eligibility) or a $40,000 salary for Mathematics residents (no AmeriCorps award), discounted tuition from National Louis University, and financial aid including loan forgiveness.
● Post-training job placement opportunity: After the training year, graduates commit to teach in an AUSL-managed Chicago Public School for at least four years.
