CT Teacher Residency Program

Do you or someone you know want to become a certified teacher? Here is your chance! The Connecticut Teacher Residency Program is now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 cohort in one of our regional cohorts across Connecticut. Certification pathways include Elementary Education (grades 1-6) and Special Education (grades preK-12). Resident candidates will be enrolled in rigorous coursework for 14 to 18 months and serve in a paid residency position with benefits in a mentor teacher’s classroom for the duration of an entire school year. Resident candidates are required to have a bachelor’s degree and an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or greater unless approved by a waiver. Residents are eligible for a full-time teaching position upon successful completion of the program and certification requirements and are expected to serve as a teacher in the partner school district for a minimum of three years.

If you or someone you know is interested in being considered for the Hamden district, please contact Stacie D’Antonio, Principal of Ridge Hill School at sdantonio@hamden.org.  You can also sign up for the session to meet with TRP Staff by enrolling in the link below.  Be sure to note that you are interested in being part of the Hamden Public Schools District.
