RECRUITING IMMEDIATELY for Academic Year 19-20: 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 tuition scholarship that covers nearly the entire cost of the program, as well as salary and health benefits from the School District of Philadelphia. Drexel teacher residents will take online 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. Drexel’s program is accepting applications for students to teach secondary and middle grades science and mathematics subjects.
