CMCSS Teacher Residency Program

Nashville State is partnering with Clarksville-Montgomery County School System and Austin Peay State University on a Teacher Residency Program. This program is available to CMCSS classified employees and graduating seniors, and Montgomery County residents.

Participants will enter an accelerated 3-year teaching program to become CMCSS teachers. The first year and a half will be with Nashville State’s K-5 Elementary Education A.S.T. program. Upon graduation from Nashville State, students will transfer to APSU and complete a Bachelor of Science in K-5 Education in a year and a half.

Resident students will be funded through TN Promise or TN Reconnect, if eligible, with CMCSS covering all additional fees. As a resident, you will work and be paid as an educational assistant in a CMCSS Title I elementary school.

Application deadline for community members is Feb. 10. High school seniors need to submit applications by March 5. All required paperwork and applications can be found on the CMCSS website: www.cmcss.net/trp.
