Project REACh not only provides a $45,000 stipend to teacher residents, it also incorporates an M.Ed. degree, a rigorous professional development training component and an induction program thereafter, which supports teachers in their new roles. Based on content areas of interest, the Master of Science in Education degree can include an emphasis in one of the following areas: • Early Childhood Education • Elementary Education • English Language Arts Education • History Education • Mathematics Education • Science Education • Special Education • Teaching residents will gain content knowledge and teaching experience coupled with inquiry-based instruction methods.
