(Feb. 9, 2015)—In 2013, LIU Hudson, encompassing Long Island University’s Rockland and Westchester campuses, collaborated with the Bronxville UFSD to offer a highly desirable Teacher Residency program.

This competitive program provides a limited number of paid, clinically rich, and intensive experiences to aspiring teachers while they complete graduate work in education. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, the residencies facilitate the transition of highly talented students from novice to full-fledged professional. At completion, they are able, with confidence, to take on the challenges of the classroom and make a positive impact on their students.

Candidates presenting appropriate academic credentials, and prepared to commence M.S.Ed. coursework in summer or fall 2015, undergo a screening process in order to gain admission to the September 2015 Teacher Residency cohort. Appointments are awarded on a competitive basis.

Accepted LIU Hudson master’s degree candidates are granted one- to two-year appointments comprising a combination of immersive, classroom-based experiences that capitalize on the student’s talents and meet professional, academic, and individual needs.

Teaching Residents benefit from:

  • Mentored, supervised, and supported by a university-based field   advisor and a school-based cooperating teacher
  • Practical application of concepts learned in the classroom
  • Seminars providing numerous networking opportunities
  • An insider’s perspective on school culture, philosophy, and operation
  • Career-readying, on-site experiences with teachers and administrators
  • A résumé-building, paid position

TR program applicants can apply to LIU Hudson here and to the TR program here.
