The School of Education’s teacher residency pathway is designed to provide aspiring teachers with a high-quality practical experience while working towards a California teaching credential and a master’s degree in education, with an emphasis in teaching and learning.
The residency approach is similar to the medical school residency in which physicians are trained alongside clinicians in hospitals and similar to the idea of attorneys entering their field through full-time clerkships. Teacher Residents are placed in PK-12 classrooms and work alongside a Resident Mentor (veteran teacher) immediately after a series of intensive summer courses or workshops. Instead of a short student-teaching stint with lengthy observations, Residents spend more time leading a classroom before earning their credential while learning from mentor teachers, faculty, and university supervisors.
