Resident Teacher Program Description:
At the heart of great schools is great teaching. The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at Hillbrook is a program that provides students and faculty with an exceptional educational experience and environment. The core of the CTE is the Resident Teacher Program, a paid, two-year, hands-on teaching and professional development experience that incorporates both theoretical and practical aspects of teaching for beginning and early-career teachers.
Modeled after medical residency training provided for doctors, Residents teach shoulder-to-shoulder with our grade-level and departmental teaching teams engaging in all aspects of teaching and school-wide responsibilities; collaborate, explore and exchange ideas on cutting-edge practices impacting teaching and educational excellence; and have leadership opportunities at Hillbrook-sponsored conferences and events. Our emphasis on collaboration and co-teaching allows the Resident and teaching teams to make deep inquiries into learning.
