Couldn’t ask for better news on this, World Teachers’ Day: Canisius College is proud to announce that the Cullen Foundation has awarded a significant, one-year grant to its Western New York Teacher Residency program.  The grant will fund scholarships to second-year resident students.  The Cullen Foundation has awarded nearly $400,000 to the Western New York Teacher Residency program, since the Canisius program was established in 2018. 

Similar to a medical school residency, the WNY Teacher Residency at Canisius College is a rigorous two-year program that couples master’s level classes with a full year of teaching in a classroom with a skilled mentor-teacher.  In the classroom, students learn the underlying theories of effective teaching.  They then practice and hone those skills in a one-year teaching residency in a Buffalo public or charter school.
