RECRUITING IMMEDIATELY for Academic Year 18-19: Interested in becoming a teacher? Through a partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, Drexel University offers a 12-month teacher residency program that includes a living stipend, PRAXIS test prep and support, as well as tuition funding that covers nearly the entire cost of tuition. Drexel teacher residents will take courses required for PA teacher certification through Drexel University’s blended certification program, while working side-by-side with a mentor teacher in a classroom in a Philadelphia school. Mentor teachers are trained by Drexel and provide candidates with valuable feedback to help them sharpen their skills as a teacher. Upon successful completion of the program, students are guaranteed employment in the School District of Philadelphia, and are provided ongoing, post-program support at no additional cost.
