The Teacher in Residence Programs allow students who already hold a bachelor's degree to receive employment in a classroom while simultaneously completing their education coursework toward certification. The Post Baccalaureate Teacher in Residence Programs are approved by the Arizona Department of Education and utilizes the Alternative Teaching Certificate (formally known as the Intern Teaching Certificate).
Students must be recommended by a school district for employment, as a contracted teacher, provide a current IVP fingerprint card, and appropriate passing subject knowledge exam scores. If teaching in an English Language Development (ELD) classroom, students must also successfully complete an approved Structured English Immersion workshop or course.
NOTE: All application materials are purged after one year from receipt when program enrollment does not transpire.
