New in 2019: CREC Teacher Residency Program

The CREC Teacher Residency Program is an alternate route to elementary certification program that embraces a different approach to attract and retain minority teacher candidates (residents):

  • Resident selection prioritizes potential to work with diverse students and minimizes barriers to traditional certification program admission.
  • Residents participate in courses for 18 months at no cost. Residents work for one year under a master teacher while receiving pay and benefits.
  • Residents earn CT certification after fourteen months.
  • Coursework is designed by practicing educators and prioritizes skills necessary to be successful in a diverse classroom.
  • Residents are guaranteed a full-time teaching position upon completion of the program and certification requirements.
