DPS to Partner with MSU and CU Denver to Invest in Aspiring Teachers’ Education

The Denver Public Schools (DPS) is forging a groundbreaking partnership with two local universities to invest in aspiring teachers’ education while they are still earning an undergraduate teaching degree. College seniors at Metropolitan State University at Denver and the University of Colorado Denver who are working toward a bachelor’s degree and teaching license will have the opportunity to become student teacher residents in a DPS school for a full year under the mentorship of a master teacher. This greatly strengthens the practical learning experience for aspiring teachers in their final year as an undergraduate. The partnership will present an opportunity for student teachers to work directly with a veteran DPS teacher for the year, receiving critical support, mentorship and feedback during their senior year of college before becoming a first year teacher.
