What makes the University of Colorado Denver Teacher Education experience unique? Our program is nationally recognized for having one of the most innovative, collaborative teacher preparation models where top faculty work side by side with experienced K-12 partner educators to prepare you to have a profound impact on the lives of students in our most urban and diverse schools. You will “live the life of a teacher” from day one as you quickly become a vital member of the teaching staff at one of our metro area urban professional development schools as a teacher candidate intern while you simultaneously take university classes. In fact, our candidates enter their first year of teaching with the knowledge, skills, and confidence of 2nd and 3rd year teachers!
