Temple Teacher Residency (TTR) is an accelerated teacher education program devoted to preparing diverse and highly-motivated individuals to teach middle or high school mathematics, science, Spanish, or special education in high-need schools in the City of Philadelphia. In only 12 months (13.5 for special education), graduates earn a master in education (MEd) and complete necessary courses and fieldwork for Instructional I certification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
