Future Proofing– How Residences Can Support a Sustainable Teacher Pipeline

By Prepared to Teach, September 2023

Prepared to Teach, as a new national organization, is thrilled to continue building the movement of paid residencies! We are now a fiscally sponsored project housed within Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, a global nonprofit that accelerates philanthropy in pursuit of a just world.

One of the most exciting elements of our transition is the launch of our new website,, where we share our work in the national movement toward equitable teacher preparation pathways. We are dedicated to helping states, districts, and programs design affordable, sustainably funded paid residencies that attract and retain strong, committed teachers from diverse backgrounds.

The site comes complete with an expansive and searchable resource library. Moreover, all Prepared To Teach resources are Creative Commons licensed, so you can use them however you like! You can also read powerful stories happening now through spotlights of our partners’ work in schools, districts, programs, and states.

As we continue to support shifts in the preparation ecosystem so that every aspiring teacher can receive high-quality preparation through a paid residency, we encourage you to visit our site to learn more about our approaches and successes toward these goals. We look forward to hearing from you!
