Become an ECE, Elementary, or Secondary Teacher in Colorado
The PEBC Teacher Residency program prepares you for an exceptional career as an early childhood, elementary, or secondary teacher through a hands-on licensure program. As a PEBC Teacher Resident, you will be trained over the course of one year and supported by expert instructors and coaches who are committed to your success. Residency experiences are offered in public, private, and charter schools in rural, urban, and suburban schools across Colorado. We welcome culturally diverse candidates including multilingual learners. Most residents receive $32,000 or more in financial support as they learn alongside a mentor teacher during the 23-24 school year!
Join us to learn about how to become a licensed teacher in the State of Colorado through the PEBC Teacher Residency! At our information sessions you'll learn more about the residency model, what to expect during your residency year, the supports that PEBC offers to residents during their residency year and beyond, program costs and our two different pathways toward licensure. These sessions are free of charge. We hope to see you there!
One of the most important factors in the achievement of students is the preparation and quality of the teacher. We believe that all students deserve inspiring and effective teachers who engage them in learning. PEBC offers two pathways into the profession that support learning and rigorous preparation for the field.
Teacher of Record Pathway
Teachers of Record are supported by PEBC mentors and coaches as they serve as the sole teacher in the classroom.
Teacher Residency Pathway
Teacher Residents gain support from PEBC coaches as they work side-by-side with a mentor teacher in the classroom.
