The Graduate School of Education (GSE) at the University at Buffalo (UB), the State University of New York invites an accomplished educator and leader for a clinical faculty position in the Department of Learning and Instruction to provide leadership, vision and coordination for our new Urban Teacher Residency Program (UBTR). The UBTR is an accelerated, innovative, one-year initial teacher certification program for individuals with strong content area expertise (i.e. Mathematics, English, History, Biology, etc.) who are committed to teaching in Buffalo’s public schools.
The Program Director for the UBTR will oversee all aspects of our teacher residency program including recruitment, selection, and support for teacher residents and expert teachers. The Program Director will be strategic and innovative in leading ongoing recruitment of resident teachers into the UBTR, selecting excellent mentor teachers in supportive school environments, overseeing multiple clinical aspects of the residency year, and facilitating professional development communities (both virtual and face-to-face) for residents and teachers. Additionally, the program director will be responsible for developing and overseeing the annual summer teacher residency institute, a one-week intensive professional development for all participating teachers and residents.
