Give future educators access to real-world teaching experiences.
Your investment will:
- Allow students without financial means the ability to pursue the Teacher Residency Program, which provides real-world classroom experience and master teacher mentorship
- Increase number of upcoming diverse, well-trained teachers
Quality teacher preparation is providing future teachers with effective hands-on, in-class management; teaching strategies; and curriculum development experience — applying theory to practice, but not at the expense of the student. Under the direction of a seasoned mentor teacher, future teachers gain competency, refine their teaching methods and gain practical, real-world experience in a rigorous yearlong residency that prevents them from securing additional employment. The residency requires students to teach full-time at a school site serving a diverse population while matriculating as a full-time credential candidate.
Your investment will support a Teacher Residency Program that allows students without financial means to obtain the highest level of teacher preparation and learn the skills to teach in a real-world classroom with diverse, tech-driven learners and a variety of non-theoretical challenges.
