Through a partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, Drexel University offers a paid 12-month teacher residency program that includes salary, health benefits, and a scholarship that covers nearly the entire cost of tuition. Drexel teacher residents will take courses required for PA teacher certification online through Drexel University, while working side-by-side with a mentor teacher in a classroom in a Philadelphia school. Mentor teachers are trained by Drexel and provide students with valuable feedback to help them sharpen their skills as a teacher. Upon completion of the program, students are guaranteed employment in the School District of Philadelphia. To apply, please contact Larry Keiser at 215-895-1276 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
