- The Denver Public School (DPS) system is committed to finding a diverse population to work with their students. They are reaching out and asking you to consider teaching in Denver after you graduate! We encourage you to visit the DPS website to learn more about Denver and the vast opportunities awaiting you. A couple of opportunities you do not want to miss are:
- Denver Teacher Residency Program — (1 year apprenticeship, 1 year for licensure & Master’s degree). Intended for non-licensed candidates who possess a Bachelor’s degree but do not have teaching experience, the DTR program offers an alternative route into a teaching position through a strategic combination of clinical classroom experience in urban, high-needs DPS schools.
- Denver Teaching Fellows — This competitive program recruits, selects, and trains career changers and recent graduates to close the achievement gap by becoming effective teachers in highest need schools. Denver Teaching Fellows provides candidates with a DPS-specific, 6-week summer training prior to teaching.
- Alternative Licensure Program (formerly Teachers in Residence or TiR) — Individuals who are seeking to teach a subject in high need: Early Childhood Education (PreK), Bilingual or Montessori Elementary Education, Mathematics (grades 6-12), Science (grades 6-12), or Spanish (6-12). DPS helps to coordinate enrollment of hires into this program through the Metro State College of Denver. Candidates must secure a teaching position with DPS prior to applying to the program.
- CASEL (Colorado Accelerated Special Education Licensure) — Same as Alternative Licensure Program (above) but specifically for Special Education.
- National Security Agency’s Stokes Educational Scholarship Program — The Stokes Educational Scholarship Program (formerly known as the Undergraduate Training Program) was proposed and introduced into legislation in 1986. Its purpose is to facilitate the recruitment of individuals, particularly minority high school students, who have demonstrated skills critical to NSA. Stokes provides a tremendous opportunity to gain valuable experience in your field while attending college and getting a degree. Stokes is open to high school seniors planning on majoring in computer science or computer/electrical engineering. Applications are accepted September 1st - November 15th of each year.
