Center for Urban Teaching

Center for Urban Teaching The Center for Urban Teaching identifies, prepares, and supports high-performing urban teachers and leaders. Our support focuses especially those in their first and second years of teaching.
(3)

We believe fervently in the power of great teachers to forever transform the lives of young people in the urban classroom. The very best principals and school leaders in the movement to reform schools are constantly searching for excellent teachers. They understand the profound impact that even one great teacher can have on the lives of hundreds and even thousands of young people. As a result, we move with even greater urgency armed with the knowledge that our work is important and that God has placed us here at this time to make a difference in the lives of these children. This knowledge defines our purpose.

Our Story

We believe in the power of Christ to transform. We believe that he will use us as his instruments to be a source of inspiration to those around us. We are not frightened by the challenges of reality, but believe that we can change this world and our place within it. So we work, plan, build, and dream - with the cross of Christ as our focus and guide. Our talent, discipline, and integrity - the gifts he has given us - will be our contribution to a new world. Because we believe that we can take this place, this time, and this people, and make a better place, a better time, and a better people.

Through God's power, we will either find a way or make one!

My first week of school at Cardinal Stritch, Tim Hipenbecker came into my Education class and talked about Center for Urban Teaching. I had a lot of questions but I decided to put my name down for more information and a virtual immersion tour. I watched the immersion tour and thought about my decision for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, I finally decided to do a Milwaukee Immersion Tour and enroll to be a summer school teacher. God spoke to me that day. He told me that being a summer school teacher for children who need me the most was in his plan. I became very excited when I got the email that I was accepted for the internship. I quit my job as a daycare teacher and became totally invested in my new adventure. I watched every video on the CfUT YouTube page, I started shopping for my teacher wardrobe and my classroom, and got more excited as June 12 got nearer. On June 12, I woke up from my 3 hours of anxious sleep ready for my day. As soon as I sat at the Granville table and met all my coworkers, I knew I had found my place and my people. I was ready to spend my summer with these people and inspire children with them. I looked forward to everyday I spent with them. And even on the rough days, at the end of the day, I knew that they all have my back and that tomorrow is a new day. When I first found out I was teaching 5th and 6th grade, I was nervous. I went from working with super young kids to very mature children. My first day with my class, I instantly fell in love with all of my kids. They have all left handprints on my heart and Thursday will be a bittersweet day. My first ever classroom experience is coming to an end but I know it won’t be my last. Thank you CfUT for assuring me that teaching is what I really love to do!
Summer school 2019 was my first full teaching experience with the Center for Urban Teaching. I’ve been most effected by a few things: 1. Their commitment to relationships (both staff-staff and staff-student) is unparalleled. I’ve built relationships with students and staff in 6 weeks that I’m confident will endure long term, and found like-minded community that has both challenged and supported me beyond the boundaries of my pre-experience self. 2. I haven’t been professionally challenged nor supported by any post-secondary ed. organization/experience like CfUT summer school. My summer school experience was one of the most stretching in the last year+ of my life, and yet the support I received throughout was overwhelming. I laughed, I cried, and most impactfully I received encouragement when I deserved it least and needed it most. 3. Their teaching is intensely practical & rooted in modeling — integrity between say & do a core value of the company. Anyone who goes through the program will leave with a toolbox filled with pedagogical and management strategies — equipment to own the classroom. CfUT is for anyone pursuing vital community and authentic solutions to the educational crisis in Milwaukee & America. See you next summer.

This is the last day of CFUT's summer school program at Northwest Lutheran School, and I would like to say that you all ROCKED!! I served as a program director. I was assigned to the 6th grade class and can say as an educator for over 16 years, I was super impressed. The leaders, Ms. Burris, Ms. Bridges, and Mr. Damint did an EXCELLENT job. They were consistent and very friendly towards the staff, including the directors. During morning assembly they were highly engaged and motivational, which in turn caused the students and teachers to become engaged and motivational. Everyone walked in the Fruits of the Spirit..🍎🍊🍋🍒🍇🍓🍌..All I can say is that I observed nothing but perfection at Northwest Lutheran School. The domino effect was AWESOME... God bless you all and keep up the good work. I pray that you all would take that zeal and fire back to the school staff and classrooms!!😇😇🙌🙌
CFUT friends! Do you want to work at the "Best Middle School in the 4-1-4"?! We are hiring a math teacher! Message me for details.
