Mentor-Resident Coach – AUSL Chicago Teacher Residency Program

AUSL is a nonprofit school management organization partnering with Chicago Public Schools to train teachers for positions in high-needs schools in the growing network of CPS schools managed by AUSL (currently 31 elementary and high schools).  At AUSL, it is our mission to improve student achievement in Chicago’s high-poverty, chronically failing schools. The Chicago Teacher Residency (CTR) is a full-time, yearlong urban teacher training program that equips residents with the training, skills, and practices to improve student learning outcomes. In one year, AUSL’s residents earn a Master’s degree and their Illinois PEL, while also obtaining experience in the classroom of a mentor teacher, four days a week for a full year.  For more information about AUSL, go to
