May 20, 2014 - CU Denver’s School of Education & Human Development
(SEHD) looks forward to expanding the options available to our
undergraduates through the Student Teacher Residency with Denver Public
Schools (DPS). This new venture will significantly enhance our rich
20-plus year history of partnering with DPS to prepare exceptional urban
teachers. It will allow our candidates to be immersed in strong DPS
classrooms for even more time, gain their added endorsement in
linguistically diverse education, and it will allow SEHD to more deeply
partner with district leaders around the development of curriculum that
is context-specific to DPS.
University of Colorado Denver students 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, receiving critical support, mentorship and feedback during their senior year of college before becoming a first year teacher.
Students in this program will receive priority-hiring status for a full-time job in the Denver Public Schools.
