Two of Colorado’s longtime teacher residency programs are joining forces to expand their reach and prepare at least 50 more teachers each year to help fill a declining workforce.
The Boettcher Teacher Residency, which has been around for 12 years, and the 24-year-old Stanley Teacher Prep program are making the announcement Wednesday.
The joint residency program will take on the name of the Boettcher Teacher Residency and will continue to provide a year of in-classroom training for aspiring teachers while they work toward a degree.
