East Harlem Teaching Residency – Adolescent Special Education (MSEd)

 

The East Harlem Teaching Residency, a partnership between the East Harlem Tutorial Program (EHTP) and Hunter College School of Education, is a highly selective teacher training program that develops, supports, and certifies aspiring educators to become elementary special educators in New York.
The Residency is an innovative, cohort-based teacher-training pathway for recent college graduates and career changers that develops, supports, and certifies aspiring educators to become inclusive learning teachers for East Harlem Scholars Academies and the greater East Harlem community. The program aims to improve educational outcomes for East Harlem students and increase the number of highly effective teachers serving East Harlem.

Over the course of the 28-month program, Residents co-teach a class in grades 7-12 at East Harlem Scholars Academies. Additionally, they receive a $45,000/year stipend and health insurance as well as a subsidized Master’s degree and recommendation for certification in Adolescent Special Education from Hunter College.
