The NYU Steinhardt Teacher Residency is designed to prepare you for the realities of the classroom with rigorous technology-enhanced coursework and the holistic support of hands-on practice. You build your knowledge of how to serve all students in your content area – including emergent bilinguals and students with disabilities – through a full year of gradually increasing your responsibilities in the classroom. Becoming a highly skilled educator, a teacher ready to ensure the success of all learners, is important work. It’s also hard work that requires a community of people dedicated to growing your efficacy in the classroom.

You graduate from the program with the foundation to make the greatest impact to teaching and learning in your classroom, school, system, and community.
