Pathways To Teaching
Pathways to Teaching in Denver Public Schools
Denver Public Schools is invested in cultivating a teacher workforce that is diverse and well-prepared to meet the needs of our students. Whether you have previous teaching experiences or are just beginning to consider becoming a classroom teacher, DPS has opportunities and partnerships to support you in embarking in a teaching career. We offer different types of teacher preparation experiences from traditional programs, to non-traditional programs, to a grow-your-own approach, in service of EdConnect interns, paraprofessionals and other support staff in becoming our future teachers. DPS is committed to developing a strong teacher pipeline. Teachers who are developed with a strong support systems as early as in their preservice years are better prepared for their novice teaching years. We believe that lengthening the runway for novice teachers will more likely become better faster, stay longer, and have a greater impact on student outcomes by immersing themselves in the DPS culture with DPS students.
