NMPED is working to recruit more licensed teachers into our state’s education system while ensuring that they are well prepared to teach New Mexico’s culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse student populations. This includes in-depth support every step of the way to ensure they remain in the profession and have ample opportunity for professional growth and career progression.

A teacher residency is a rigorous paid apprenticeship in which qualified residents work alongside a mentor teacher while simultaneously completing rigorous coursework in an Approved Education Provider Program (EPP)

The resident teacher receives a stipend of at least thirty-five thousand ($35,000) per year distributed to them by the EPP.
