This year, we''re proud to celebrate the 15th year of the Baltimore City Teaching Residency! During a special anniversary event last month, we reflected on the amazing work of our current teachers and alumni and their commitment to Baltimore City, its schools and our kids. Since 2002, over 2,000 teachers have come through BCTR and 700 are still in the classroom, which means our current Residents and alumni teach nearly 35,000 kids in the city. This night wouldnt have been made possible without the hard work and planning of the BCTR Alumni Association Leadership Team. In addition to remarks from BCTR staff, one current Resident and one alumna were awarded with the inaugural BCTR Excellence in Teaching award given to teachers who truly embrace and elevate the teaching profession through deep content knowledge, engaging instruction, strong relationships with kids and a track record for high student achievement. The BCTR team has created a strong culture and community within its alumni, staff, partners and teachers we cant wait to see what the next 15 years holds in store! #baltimore #bctr15 #teacherlife

For the students in Joshua Martinezs fourth-grade classroom at KIPP Races Academy in East Los Angeles, California, school means thinking deeply about math concepts and literature every day, fielding questions from their teacher, from their fellow nine-year-oldseven from the entire class as they stand up and explain their work to the whole group at the end of a challenging lesson. . At KIPP Races Academy, parents know that their students are expected to do more than arrive at a simple math solution or answer a superficial question about a storytheyre expected to think deeply and explain their reasoning. Along the way, they learn more than one path to the right answerand which one works best for them. Mr. Martinezs fourth graders are growing on average two years per school year in math and one and a half years in reading, with 82 percent scoring advanced and proficient in math and 92 percent scoring advanced and proficient in English on their latest Smarter Balanced assessments, compared to the LAUSD averages of 31 percent and 36 percent, respectively. . Just as impressively, at only nine and ten years old, these students are already learning the power of mindfulness. In Mr. Martinezs classroom, students dont have to stay in their seatsas long as they show they are thinking. His mantra is Do what you need to learn best. Students have the freedom to move around and stand during lessons with the expectation that they know best how to monitor their attention. Each morning begins with a brief lesson about how the brain functionsand how to refocus ourselves in the midst of the stresses of the day. . Educating kids in low-income communities does not have to feel disciplinarian and rigid, says Mr. Martinez. We are not aiming to be one of the best schools. We want to be one of the best school options for children from any background, period.
