Teachers impact student achievement more than any other school factor.
One of the best ways to make a difference in the lives of young people is to support the individuals who educate them. Your gift to the Arizona Teacher Residency Program helps us achieve our vision of ensuring that every child in Arizona receives an outstanding education taught by a well-prepared teacher.
In 2021, the Arizona Department of Education awarded the Arizona K12 Center with a $5 million grant to design, launch and expand the Arizona Teacher Residency in response to the state’s teacher shortage and high teacher turnover rate. Your generous donation will help keep the program going—directly helping to recruit, prepare, and support diverse and talented people who want to become teachers.
