Arizona Teacher Residency

The Arizona K12 Center is thrilled to announce the creation of the Arizona Teacher Residency, a first-of-its-kind graduate program in Arizona modeled after medical residencies, to help recruit, prepare, support, and retain K-12 teachers. The two-year program provides aspiring teachers with in-classroom experience, cost-of-living stipends, a master’s degree, and a job at a partnering school district.
