PPBOCES/UCCS Two Year Alternative Program Teacher-in-Residence
UCCS College of Education partners with Pikes Peak Board of Cooperative Educational Services (PPBOCES) to offer graduate credit for their Teacher in Residence Program (TIRP). This alternative teacher licensure program allows working professionals in other career fields to make a career transition to education. The two-year program allows participants to earn a salary while teaching in a classroom.
If you already hold a Master's Degree from an accredited institution and a Colorado Principal License, your administrator licensure program will consist of nine semester hours during a one-year intensive. When you complete this program you will be eligible for the Colorado Administrator License.
The C.I.R.C.L.E Conference is an annual diversity and inclusiveness conference for educators, board members, parents, and students committed to building more inclusive school communities. Whether or not educators feel prepared, schools in every community are changing. Student populations are diversifying, and educators must respond with professional and personal development to ensure that they are able to meet the needs of diverse student populations.
If your desire is to enhance your students educational experience and give them a jumpstart with their college career, think about participating in CU Succeed or Project Lead the Way (PLTW).
Project Lead the Way (PLTW)
Teach College Credit Courses in High School
Teach Pre-Engineering Courses in High School
University of Colorado Colorado Springs CU Succeed Program courses are taught in the high school by high school faculty whose education and experience are appropriate for an honorarium appointment in the appropriate department at the UCCS.
The high school instructor must possess a Master's degree in the subject they want to teach or a closely related field and appropriate teaching experience to become a UCCS Honorarium Faculty.
PLTW programs are designed to serve high school students of diverse backgrounds from those already interested in STEM-related fields to those who are more inspired by the application of STEM than they are by traditional mathematics and science courses.
UCCS provides quality PLTW summer training for high school teachers, ongoing training, and networking opportunities throughout the school year.
