Investing in 25 to 30 students for 8+ hours a day, educators across the city have a significant role to fill. Memphis teachers are leaders in the classroom, community, and Memphis.

“All kids deserve the chance to reach their full potential, and we believe an excellent education is the most effective way to give them that chance.”


“As a response to the Gospel mandate to love our neighbors as ourselves, MTR will provide students in partner low-income Memphis neighborhoods with the same, or better, quality of education as is available to any student in Memphis by recruiting, training, and supporting effective teachers within a Christian context.”

“We believe that intensive training is an excellent way to develop expertise in a given field (and wonder why more professions haven’t adopted the practice). In partnership with the University of the Pacific, the Aspire Teacher Residency (ATR) is a supportive teacher training program that recruits and trains individuals of all ages and backgrounds to become highly-effective teachers. “
