Mississippi Teacher Corps
The Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) is a two-year teaching program that recruits college graduates to teach in "critical-need areas" of Mississippi. Historically, most teachers have been placed in the Mississippi Delta, though in recent years a growing number have been assigned to Marshall County and other school districts outside of the Mississippi Delta.
MTC is administered by the University of Mississippi and largely funded by the Mississippi Legislature. MTC was founded by Ms. Amy Gutman in 1989.
