Teacher Residency Program

The Teacher Residency Program at Making Waves Academy prepares recent college graduates and career changers for a classroom teaching position at Making Waves Academy.

The goal of the Teacher Residency Program is to recruit, train, and hire effective educators that will work in Making Waves classrooms. During the residency year, Teacher Residents will commit to a rigorous and supportive program that develops highly-effective teachers. The year-long teacher residency is designed to help residents step into the classroom as certificated teachers ready to make an impact on student achievement. Key areas of focus for residents will be standards-aligned instructional planning, best-practice instructional teaching strategies, classroom management strategies, student engagement strategies, and strategies to build relationships and rapport with students and parents. Teacher Residents will also learn MWA’s broader foundational elements for effectively supporting our students–cultural competency, social-emotional learning, and growth mindset.

 

We provide a guided pathway and destination for those who want to teach.
