Teach and inspire young children, both English speakers and English learners.
In this teacher residency program, you'll spend a year student teaching at the PreK-2 level at a school in Somerville, Massachusetts, an urban district with 5,000 students. At the same time, you'll take courses at the school site, online, and on Lesley's nearby Cambridge campus, working toward a master's degree and a Massachusetts Initial license in early childhood (PreK-2). You'll also get the preparation you need to pursue an English as a Second Language (ESL) teaching license on your own.
Take courses covering literacy, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), and assessment. Explore language acquisition, Sheltered English Instruction, and linguistics, and use those skills in diverse classrooms. And because Lesley believes in the inclusion of all children, you'll also study how to create an anti-bias classroom community.
Emerge from this program a skilled, dedicated, and caring teacher, ready to educate all students.
