Department Summary

LCOE has developed and implemented teaching residency programs with several local school districts and recently established consortia across multiple districts to establish residency programs in specific areas: Special Education, STEM, Bilingual Education, and Ethnic Studies. These programs are designed to provide teacher candidates with the strongest possible training for success as culturally sustaining educators and to meet district hiring needs for well-prepared teachers committed to serving local communities for the long-term.

  • Partner with district leaders, site principals and program supervisors to support and mentor residents in their development as teachers
