Become a Teacher in Lynwood

Train Locally! Lynwood Teacher Residency with Alder Graduate School of Education

Our program is based on a residency model that combines immersive hands-on practice in the classroom with educational theory and research in both seminars and online. It takes place in partnership with K–12 schools in historically underserved communities, and 95% of our 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 your residency school.
  • Learn within a cohort of peers with whom you will work (and laugh) with all year, paving the way to becoming lifelong friends and colleagues.
  • 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.

All residents receive a $25,000.00 stipend disbursed in 10 monthly installments of $2500.00 beginning August 1 of each year and end in May.
