Teacher in Residency Program

The ArtsCore Teacher in Residence Program gives teacher candidates the opportunity to spend 18 weeks in a school district with cooperating teachers who are committed to arts integration as an approach to teaching.  Both arts and non-arts teacher candidates, at any level of instruction, are invited to apply for this unique opportunity, an alternative to traditional student teaching.  Arts integration enriches teaching and learning in any classroom.
