Well-trained teachers are an asset to city [Letter]

Many thanks to reporter Liz Bowie for taking a close look at how Urban Teacher Center prepares new teachers to serve our local schools more effectively ("Residency program tries to solve problem of teacher burnout," Aug. 18).

As the new school year begins, we are proud to continue our partnership with Baltimore City Schools and to introduce a new class of Urban Teacher Center residents to the teaching profession. It is the teachers — those who have recently decided to dedicate their careers to helping students learn and grow and those who advance the profession every day by serving as excellent educators — who are making a difference in the lives of students in our city and across the nation.

Thanks to all city teachers for their dedication and commitment to our youth who deserve excellent teachers every year.

Jennifer Green, Baltimore

The writer is CEO of the Urban Teacher Center.
