PEBC Teacher Residency Recruiting Coloradans to Get Licensed as Teachers in 23-24 School Year

Program Participants Earn Up to $42,000 During One-Year Training Program

Applications are now open for Public Education and Business Coalition’s (PEBC) Teacher Residency for the 23-24 school year. The Teacher Residency is a one-year program in which participants train to become teachers and earn a Colorado teacher license without requiring additional college coursework.

The PEBC Teacher Residency, modeled after medical residencies, provides supportive hands-on training and coaching to participants as they work toward a teaching license. In this one-year program, Residents work side-by-side in a classroom alongside a mentor teacher or, for those with significant classroom experience, as the sole teacher in their classroom. Residents earn their Colorado teacher license upon completion of the program. 

“The PEBC Teacher Residency is an ideal opportunity for anyone who is feeling a calling to join the profession but discovered that passion after they already finished college,” said Dr. Jessamyn Lockhart, Senior Director of Residency at PEBC. “We provide a supportive path into the profession, and new funding makes this opportunity possible for more people than ever before.”

PEBC Teacher Residents can earn up to $42,000 while they complete the program, thanks in part to a new state law, Colorado HB22-1220, that provides up to $22,000 in stipends for participants who currently earn up to 200 percent of the Federal Pell Grant eligibility limit.

Apply by the priority deadline of December 2 for best consideration. To learn more, register for an information session, or apply, visit
