DPS partners with NYU to offer teaching program


DANBURY, CONN. — Danbury Public Schools has partnered with New York University’s Steinhardt program to provide a one-year combined residency and master-of-arts teaching program for college graduates to become public school teachers.

 An information session on the program will be held at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 13, in the Black Box Theater at Danbury High School, 43 Clapboard Ridge Road. Qualified candidates need only have a bachelor’s degree.

 The Danbury initiative will begin in the fall to prepare middle and high school teachers in English, math, science, social studies and special education. The program uses a transformative approach to teacher preparation by combining comprehensive instruction with holistic support including school-based mentors and hands-on classroom experience.
