El Segundo Schools Teacher Residency at Alder GSE

This innovative teacher residency program combines immersive hands-on practice in the classroom with educational theory and research in both in-person seminars and online courses. It takes place in partnership with K–12 schools in historically underserved communities, and 97% of Alder graduates obtain full-time teaching positions after completing the program. 
 
In this residency year you will:
  • Earn your Master’s Degree and Teaching Credential* in one year.
  • Apprentice four days a week with an expert teacher in an El Segundo Unified School District School
  • Learn within a cohort of peers with whom you will work (and laugh) all year, paving the way to becoming lifelong friends and colleagues.
  • Build a relationship with an expert instructional leader in K–12 education, who will advise and support you through one-on-one observation and dialogue.
  • Engage in critical conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion with your mentor, instructors, and peers.
  • Receive priority consideration for a full-time position upon completing the program.
  • Do all of this at a cost that is affordable and includes financial support.
*Once Alder GSE has been granted both Initial Institutional Approval and Initial Program Approval by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
