The NYU Teacher Residency is a one-year combined residency and master of arts in teaching (MAT) preparing you to teach middle and high school students of all backgrounds and instructional needs. Your cohort of peers mirrors this commitment to diversity.
Whether you just started your job search on Idealist or if it’s been months, look no further. In just one year, you can be on your way to a career that makes a positive difference in the world.
Being a highly skilled educator is important work. It’s also hard work that requires a community of people dedicated to growing your efficacy in the classroom. While immersing into a school community, you are surrounded by multiple layers of support from your fellow teacher residents, in-school mentor teachers, and NYU Steinhardt faculty.
The Teacher Residency prepares you for the realities of the classroom with rigorous coursework, hands-on practice, and culturally responsive teaching.
You learn your content area along with the essential skills that all teachers need to be effective while building deep knowledge of how to serve all students – including emergent bilinguals and students with disabilities. The curriculum is designed to align with what you’re doing in the classroom. You experience one module at a time while learning side by side with your teacher mentor and gradually increasing classroom responsibilities.
When it’s time to lead a classroom of your own you will have the confidence and practical foundation to meet the needs of each student while building a community of learners and connections with families and the local community.
All teacher residents are eligible for some level of scholarship and financial aid.
