Educational Inequality is the Greatest Social Justice and Civil Rights Issue in America Today.

Today, educational inequality exists along economic and racial lines. Too many children are condemned to substandard educational opportunities based solely on their zip code.

The Memphis Teacher Residency believes this is unjust and unfair. We employ a model of training that emphasizes the spiritual, social and instructional needs of teachers that we call Christian Community Education. We invite you to explore our model and to join us in Memphis as we promote Christian love expressed in equal education.

“Urban education reform requires everybody to contribute, and I believe we all have the capacity to be invested in our schools. I am committed to finding creative ways to foster community mindsets and academic success in the classroom. I hope that my students know that they are valued and they are inherently capable of doing great things.”
