Your Experience Necessary.
The Denver Teacher Residency will train you to be a teacher, prepare you to teach in Denver Public Schools and transform your life and the future of Denver’s children. Put your academic and professional success to work in the classroom – no formal teaching experience necessary.
If you have ever thought about becoming a teacher – to make a difference, help children, increase student achievement or to give back to the community – you’re needed now more than ever. DTR is a groundbreaking program designed to train and support committed and motivated people of all ages and walks of life to become teachers and improve student achievement in the dynamic and diverse Denver Public Schools.
Effective Teaching Starts with You.
Good teaching is the single most important factor in closing the achievement gap. That’s why Denver Public Schools is focused on having a highly effective teacher in each and every one of its classrooms. Combining theory and classroom experience, the Denver Teacher Residency prepares aspiring teachers for success in an urban school district.
You will teach and learn alongside a mentor teacher in a Denver Public Schools classroom for a full academic year, pairing this experience with earning a master’s degree from the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education. As a resident you’ll receive data-driven instructional support and training in elementary or secondary education to best serve DPS’ highest-need students.
Teachers matter. Become an effective teacher with Denver Teacher Residency and help Denver Public Schools’ students achieve.
