We want to create a system that serves all students well. And if you want to be a part of that kind of change, of a system that at its heart is about equity, you should join us.

Admissions Process

Step 1: Learn About Our Program + Approach
Step 2: Complete the Online Application

The first step in the process is to create an online application. This includes:

  • A resumé
  • A response to the question: Please tell us why you want to become a teacher, including your professional, educational, and personal path towards making this decision
    • Answers can be a short essay (approximately 200 words), video (approximately 3-5 minutes), a slide deck, or any other format that allows you to share authentically
    • Responses should fully answer the question and provide insight into your path to teaching. Make sure to include details about life experiences and factors driving you toward a career in education.
  • An unofficial copy of your undergraduate transcripts
  • Names and email addresses of three professional references we can contact to learn more about your experience working with youth and/or related work experience
Step 3: Phone Interview

Following the submission of the online application, we’ll conduct a phone interview to discuss your short answer responses, and to learn more about you and your prior experiences.

Step 4: Virtual Face-to-Face Interview

The next step is a virtual interview with a few members of our team.  The face-to-face interview includes a role play simulation, an opportunity to share more about why you are a good fit for the Marshall Teacher Residency, and a traditional interview portion.  We will provide you with materials prior to the interview to help you prepare, as well as the opportunity to attend a virtual preparation session if you have questions or need additional guidance prior to your interview.

Step 5:  Reference Check

Following the final interview, we will conduct a reference check with 3 professional references.

Step 6: Admissions & Enrollment

We begin admitting candidates into the program in January.  In order enroll in the program, you will need to provide:

  • A signed enrollment agreement
  • Documentation that shows you have attempted, passed, or registered for the CSET exam
