Strengthening the Latinx Teacher Pipeline Through Residency and Research-Practice Partnerships

Fri, April 12, 4:55 to 6:25pm, Pennsylvania Convention Center, Floor: Level 100, Room 104A

Session Type: Symposium


The need for an increasingly diverse teacher workforce is well-documented, as are the challenges that contribute to the “leaky pipeline” in education (Wilson & Kelley, 2022). This symposium will highlight one region-wide, systems-level effort to strengthen and diversify the teacher pipeline through the design and implementation of an equity-focused, partnership-based residency in one border metropolitan area of Texas comprised of a PK-12 population that is more than 90% Latinx. Participants – one Hispanic Serving Institution and two school district partners – will share findings from their research-practice partnership focused on the holistic impacts of the paid residency on teacher candidates, mentor teachers, and residency-prepared new teachers. These findings contribute to a growing knowledge base on teacher residency and transformations in university-district partnerships.
