Interested in Becoming a Teacher Resident
A residency program is the best way to enter the classroom, ready to teach on day one.
Learn to Teach
Like doctors training in hospitals, residents spend a full year learning how to be an effective teacher, working alongside an accomplished mentor teacher. With ongoing support, residents train in the district where he/she will launch their teaching career. Successful candidates complete the residency with state certification and a Master’s degree. Along the way, residents learn what it means to make a difference in students’ lives from inside the classroom. Ready to start? Join the residency movement!
