Shady Hill's nationally known Teacher Training Center (TTC) is a graduate-level teacher-preparation program that provides aspiring teachers with well-guided experiences in pre-K through eighth-grade classrooms. In this one year, site-based program, apprentice teachers discover what teaching is all about through observation, supervised teaching, workshops, seminars, and continuous involvement in the life of the school. Some participants choose to enroll solely in the TTC, though most also participate in a partnering master's program at Lesley University or Boston University (new for 2018-19).
A City Year Alumni Career Partnership with Shady Hill's Teacher Training Course strengthens an applicant's chances of being admitted to the TTC. Read more about this partnership here. Click here for details.
Boasting similar missions and emphasizing practical experience from the beginning, the TTC has been an excellent next step for Breakthrough alumni, who have an advantage in the TTC admissions process. Click here for details.
"The development of the person is really the most important element in the education of a teacher. No amount of technique or scholarship can make a good teacher out of a person who is afraid of experience."- Katharine Taylor, TTC Founder & first Director of Shady Hill School
