"TORSH Talent has been an integral part of our Capital Teaching Residency (CTR) program, a highly selective teacher training program that provides a pathway for aspiring teachers to develop into outstanding educators prepared to serve in high-need schools in Washington, D.C. Through TORSH Talent, our resident teachers upload video of their classroom practice and receive feedback on those videos for training and certification purposes. We’ve found TORSH Talent to be an easy to use platform that has increased the efficiency and effectiveness of our CTR program while decreasing the time and resources needed."
