The Boettcher Teacher Residency operates on the principle that the classroom is the best place for teachers to develop the skills they need, so our teacher training program places them in teaching positions alongside master teachers right from the start. Every day, our Boettcher Teachers are deeply involved in teaching students, all while fulfilling their own coursework requirements for a master’s degree in education.
We help them every step of the way with outstanding mentors, peer groups and expertise because we know that when teachers are well-trained and energetically supported, their commitments to their careers soar and students thrive as a result.
Since the program launched, 96% of Boettcher Teacher Residency graduates have completed their five-year service commitments. More than 61,250 Colorado students have been impacted by the program.
