Relay Teaching Residency (License and Master of Arts in Teaching)

Those new to the teaching profession find Relay’s flagship MAT with a Teaching Residency program incredibly helpful. Not only will you learn from seasoned professionals as you complete your graduate degree coursework, but you will also earn a teaching certification and have an apprentice year where you will get hands-on classroom experience. This gradual on-ramp towards teaching and managing your classroom will give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to excel as a teacher of record.

Participants work full time during their first year while gradually taking on more responsibilities under the guidance of a mentor teacher. They will apply for a Colorado teaching license in the summer of their second year, and then move into a teacher-of-record position in their second year while completing their graduate coursework and earning a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree.
