San Diego Teacher Residency (SDTR) prepares teachers to educate for justice and deeper learning. We believe that all children deserve a space where they can bring their full selves and develop as curious, critical, and creative humans. Public school classrooms have enormous potential to become such spaces — and SDTR is part of the movement to make the transformation happen, one new teacher at a time.
As an SDTR resident, you will earn a California teaching credential and a Master’s in Teaching & Learning. In year 1 you will take courses with your cohort and spend four days a week student-teaching alongside a skilled mentor at one of High Tech High’s 16 K-12 schools. In year 2 you will extend your learning, completing your degree while fully employed. First-year residents of our teacher residency program receive an $8,000 stipend in addition to federal aid.
Applications for our Fall 2022 incoming cohort are open! Please find our SDTR application instructions to submit your materials by our priority deadline on February 4, 2022.
