East Harlem Teaching Residency – Childhood Education (MSEd)


Welcome to the East Harlem Teaching Residency – Childhood Education (MSEd) program home page. Use this page as a guide to the program from acceptance to graduation.

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 teachers in New York, culminating in Master’s degree in Childhood Education.

The Residency is designed specifically for recent college graduates and career changers who are looking for an innovative pathway into the teaching profession. Students are paired with an experienced mentor teacher in an EHTP public charter school in the morning and lead academic instruction in an EHTP elementary after-school program in the afternoon. Simultaneously, students enroll in tuition-subsidized graduate coursework leading to a master’s degree at Hunter College in childhood education and eligibility for New York State initial teacher certification. Students receive approximately $5,000 in tuition subsidy. Residents who successfully complete 14-month residency program can elect to enroll in additional subsidized coursework leading to certification in special education the following year.

The Residency program is a proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network. Upon successful completion of the residency, students are eligible for the Eli Segal AmeriCorps Education Award. This award can be used to repay student loans and/or to pay future tuition costs at qualifying institutions.
