Teacher Residency for Rural Education (TRRE)
Teacher Residency for Rural Education (TRRE) is a 15-month graduate level program that prepares elementary and secondary mathematics and science teachers to teach in rural, high-need schools in northern New Hampshire. The program leads to a Masters degree and endorsement for NH teacher certiﬁcation in one of four areas:
- Elementary Education (K-6)
- Elementary Education with Middle School Mathematics (K-8)
- Elementary Education with Middle School Science (K-8)
- Secondary Mathematics (7-12)
- Secondary Science (7-12)
The features that distinguish the TRRE program include an integrated curriculum centered on STEM content and pedagogy, clinical strength through a full-year residency, and a focus on knowing families and communities. The program uses high leverage practices that promote student achievement, provide opportunities to learn how to work with all students, and connect teaching to the resources of rural communities through community-based internships.
TRRE is funded in part by a grant from the US Department of Education Oﬃce of Innovation and Improvement.
