A Statement of Purpose is an important opportunity to explain why you are passionate about becoming a teacher. It is a personal statement about who you are, what has influenced your career path and how it led you to teaching. 

  • Why do you want to become a teacher?
  • Why are you interested in this particular program (i.e. residency model or mentor support) as a way to become an educator in an urban or rural environment?

 Short Answer Questions 
Please answer both of the following questions on the same document with one or two paragraphs per question (250-400 words each). Upload the document below. 
  1. Successful teachers are lifelong learners - - they look for ways to learn and grow from feedback, failure, setbacks, and challenges. Please share an example of a time in which you experienced a failure or faced a significant setback. How did you approach the situation, and what did you learn from it?
  2. Describe and reflect upon a significant experience you have had interacting with people who come from backgrounds different from your own (i.e. racially, ethnically, socio-economically, religiously, culturally, etc.) What did you learn from this experience? How will this experience help prepare you for effective teaching in a school environment?
