What is the NMUTR?
The NMUTR is a cutting-edge apprenticeship-based program for individuals with a deep commitment to teaching and a strong interest in urban education. Working from the model of medical residencies, the NMUTR provides on-site education, intensive classroom experiences with a master teacher, and three years of mentoring and professional development in the schools where residents are hired to teach. Residents receive a $26,000-$30,000 living stipend and a tuition waiver which covers approximately 2/3 of the cost of graduate tuition at Montclair State University while enrolled in the 12-15 month program. Residents who successfully complete the program will simultaneously earn their Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) and New Jersey teacher certification. Graduates of the NMUTR are required to make a three year commitment to teach in the Newark Public Schools.
