• Oakland Unified is Growing a Teacher Residency     

     We are thrilled to announce that Oakland Unified was recently funded by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing to launch a Special Education and STEM residency program for aspiring educators! 


    A teacher residency is a paid immersive clinical practice experience that lasts one full year. During this year, teacher residents are both training with an accomplished veteran teacher as well as attending classes in the afternoon or evening in order to earn their California Preliminary Teaching Credential. A teacher residency is designed to support future teachers in learning the art and science of teaching, supported by mentorship and job-aligned university coursework. 


    A teaching residency represents a powerful learning opportunity that honors the profession of teaching by preparing excellent educators to be ready for the first day of teaching. 


    To learn more about the residencies we are developing, please see the links below.
