Teacher Reading to Students - Elementary

By Educators, for Educators

Welcome to the new WEA Teacher Residency Program!

The Washington Education Association Teacher Residency Program provides individualized pathways to certification for educators who are a reflection of Washington’s diverse learners and communities. Our aim is to support our residents to serve and advocate for students while disrupting and dismantling institutional systems that cause harm to students and teachers. The residency program provides application-based learning that centers inclusive, equitable practices that prioritize student/family centered asset-based approaches to nurture student success.

“Our goal is simple. As an education community, we must continue to lift diverse, aspiring educators who reflect the diversity of our public schools. Our students and communities deserve the best prepared and most innovative teachers. Together, in our union, we have the power and expertise to make a difference. For the future of education in our state and across the nation, we will continue to strengthen our public schools together.” 

- WEA President Larry Delaney
