On May 1st, a group of political leaders from across the nation learned about residency as a best practice in teacher development from PEBC and C3 (Creativity Challenge Community) School in Denver.
PEBC hosted the Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellows from across the country. Hunt-Kean is a national, nonpartisan leadership group, whose mission it is to equip senior-level political leaders with knowledge and skill to lead education efforts in their states. Many Hunt-Kean Fellows are gubernatorial candidates.
PEBC convened the fellows at C3, where the residency model is included in school design and ingrained in the school culture. The C3 staff of teachers and leaders is comprised of several residency alumni and the school currently hosts residents. PEBC led the conversation between the Fellows, Boettcher Teacher Residency staff and C3 staff to dive into residency issues such as recruitment, selection and the resident performance in comparison to other novice teachers.
The conversation transformed from theory to reality as the Fellows toured C3 classrooms and observed a community of joyful learning with both effective teachers and engaged students.
Fellows who attended:
John Chiang, Treasurer, CA
Doug Chen, Attorney General, HI
Ed Murray, Secretary of State, WY
Cary Kennedy, Former Treasurer, CO
Senator Owen Hill and former Senator Mike Johnston (a Hunt-Kean alum) attended a portion of the session.
PEBC’s mission has always been rooted in the belief that every child deserves access to excellent educators. We believe this is achieved through teachers abilities to obtain educator licensure. We pledge to continue to offer residency that leads to licensure to produce committed, prepared and effective educators across Colorado.
PEBC & Great Ed Colorado host a Rural Legislative Listening Tour with policy-makers and educators from Otis, Center, and Durango to discuss the upcoming legislative session.
