The NYU Teacher Residency combines the comprehensive instruction of a master’s degree from a world-renowned research university with deep partnerships in schools and districts across the country.

Located about an hour inland off Florida’s sun-filled eastern shores, the School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC) in West Palm Beach is the 10th largest in the nation and the fifth largest in the state serving more than 193,000 students who speak 145 languages and dialects. This community-centric, diverse school system will empower you to bring your passion for teaching and your dedication to serve all learners each and every day.

With our Teacher Residency, everything is about community. Being a highly skilled educator is important work. It’s also hard work that requires a community of people dedicated to helping you succeed in the classroom.

In just one year, you can earn a Master of Arts in Teaching. While immersing into a school community, you are surrounded by multiple layers of support from your fellow teacher residents, in-school mentors, and NYU Steinhardt faculty. We’re committed to helping you build the skills needed to be an active member of your community and effectively serve all students.

NYU Steinhardt and its partner schools are also committed to affordability. We offer generous support to ensure our Residency is affordable to applicants from diverse backgrounds.
