Teacher Residency 2024-03-12T05:49:24-06:00

NMPED is working to recruit more licensed teachers into our state’s education system while ensuring that they are well prepared to teach  New Mexico’s culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse student populations. This includes deep support every step of the way to ensure that they stay in the profession and have ample opportunity for professional growth and career advancement.

Teacher residency is a rigorous paid guided apprenticeship where qualified residents work alongside a mentor educator while simultaneously completing rigorous coursework at an approved Education Preparation Program (EPP).

A Teacher Resident receives a stipend of no less than thirty-five thousand ($35,000) yearly which is distributed to them by the EPP.
