Dallas Teacher Residency (DTR) successfully completed the yearlong United Way Ground Floor accelerator program in June. With the support of the United Way, DTR was able to establish the partnerships necessary in order to develop and launch its first resident cohort within Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD). The first DTR cohort began their teaching residency in North Dallas HS on August 18th, 2014. Furthermore, DTR residents have been taking graduate level coursework at University North Texas at Dallas throughout the summer months, and will continue their coursework (which is strategically aligned to their urban classroom experience), over the course of the 2014-2015 academic school year.
