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.

On September 23, 2015, PEBC announced that it will unite the Boettcher Teacher Residency with Stanley Teacher Prep, Colorado’s first residency-based teacher preparation program and among the nation’s finest. The combined residency will bring even more expertise, support and resources to help aspiring teachers thrive. Click here to read the announcement, or download an FAQ.

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.

PEBC founded the Boettcher Teacher Residency program in 2004, in partnership with the Boettcher Foundation, to recruit and train new teachers to make a lasting impact on student achievement in partner schools.

Multiple Colorado school districts cooperate to provide Residency training and hiring sites including: Denver Metro – Adams 12, Aurora, Jeffco, Brighton and Douglas; San Luis Valley (Alamosa) – Alamosa, Center, Sierra Grande, Moffat-2 and North Conejos; Southwest (Durango) – Durango, Montezuma-Cortez, Dolores and Ignacio; and Southeast (La Junta/Rocky Ford) – East Otero and Rocky Ford.

PEBC recommends that residents pursue a Master’s Degree in Education. Adams State University is the recommended university for residents in the San Luis Valley, Southeastern Colorado and other rural communities across Colorado.
