Noble Schools: Relay Residency Program

Relay Residency Program

The Teaching Residency is a two-year program where educators have the opportunity to participate in a year-long apprenticeship under the guidance and direction of a mentor teacher before transitioning into a lead teaching position in the second year of the program. This program is designed for individuals who want to enter the teaching profession, and are looking for the support, training, and feedback required in becoming a highly effective teacher. Our residents join a selective cohort of diverse and talented future teachers committed to educational justice.


Noble provides Tuition assistance for both years enrolled in Relay Graduate School of Education.

“I am really glad for the Relay Teaching Residency and the impact it has had on me as a teacher. I have found so many connections between what I have been learning in our sessions and what I do as a learning specialist.”

My Role

Residents at Noble typically fill a teacher’s assistant (TA) or paraprofessional role, and their responsibilities include providing one-on-one support to students, providing direct instruction to small groups of students, co-teaching, and filling in as substitute teachers.

Over the course of the program, you will build your teaching skills with guidance from your Relay professors and a designated mentor at your school. Throughout your first year as a teaching resident, you’ll gradually gain responsibility by leading small groups of students through lessons until you are ready to instruct a whole class.
