The PEBC Teacher Residency Experience

PEBC’s residency program 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 residents gain support as they work side-by-side with a mentor teacher while completing licensure coursework. No prior teaching experience is required.

Residency experiences are offered in public, private and charter schools in rural, urban and suburban schools across Colorado
