Teacher Residency

Graland Country Day School and Boettcher Teacher Residency seeks candidates to participate in an alternative teacher licensure program where they’ll receive their Colorado Teacher’s License.
Residents gain an understanding of teaching through an experience-based program coupled with licensure coursework that allows residents to connect theory and practice. They steadily take on increasing responsibilities as their skills and confidence grow. Resident teachers start the year working with small groups of children and end the year capable of managing the entire class.
With ongoing feedback and support from their field coach and mentor teacher, residents participate in all aspects of the teaching process. They learn to help children with a wide range of abilities and share in celebrating diversity within the classroom.

Graland residents are paid a stipend and receive some benefits. Please contact us to learn more.
