Teacher Residency

We're eager to share what we're learning.

That is why our programs offer an exceptional teacher residency experience that provides you with opportunities to learn and explore the various methods of teaching and classroom management to help you overcome future challenges.

We believe you, as a new teacher, need practice teaching combined with effective mentoring to prepare you for your future job as an educator. We are confident that your teacher residency experiences will help prepare you to deal with the common problems teachers face each day. In order for you to get the most out of your time as a teacher intern resident, we encourage your cooperating teacher to be involved with your experience and to provide feedback each day. Collaborating with your teacher will help you cultivate new skills and abilities.
