PEBC’s Boettcher Teacher Residency prepares people to have exceptional teaching careers through a hands-on licensure program.
PEBC believes the classroom is the best place for teachers to develop the skills they need, so we place them in teaching positions alongside master teachers right from the start. Every day, our resident teachers pour themselves into teaching students, all the while fulfilling their own licensure coursework requirements. We help them every step of the way with outstanding mentors, peer groups, and expertise because we know that when teachers are well-trained and energetically supported, their commitment to their careers soar and students thrive as a result.
In 2015, PEBC’s Boettcher Teacher Residency combined with Stanley Teacher Prep, Colorado’s first residency-based teacher preparation program. The combined residency has brought even more expertise, support and resources to help aspiring teachers thrive.
Boettcher Teacher Residency is generously funded by the Boettcher Foundation. Since 1937 the Boettcher Foundation’s mission has been to invest in the minds and mortar of Colorado.
