Boulder Journey School is recognized internationally for innovation in early childhood education and teacher education. Developed in partnership with the University of Colorado Denver and the Colorado Department of Education, the Teacher Education Program offers a one-year master’s degree and teaching licensure residency program.
This program features a paid, year-long residency teaching experience. As a Resident Teacher, you’ll co-teach alongside a mentor teacher at Boulder Journey School or at a partnering school.
During your residency, you’re invited to act as a leader and advocate in the field of education, through hands-on experiences. You’ll create and implement contextual curriculum, design learning environments and partner with families and community members. You’ll also travel to Reggio Emilia, Italy to participate in a week-long study group experience.
This program also offers a Teacher of Record pathway for those who are currently employed or in the process of obtaining employment in a sole or lead teaching position.
