Resident Teacher Program Overview
PGCPS Resident Teacher Programs are Maryland Approved Alternative Preparation Programs (MAAPP) designed for professionals interested in changing careers or recent college graduates with degrees in fields other than education. PGCPS Resident Teacher Programs are an alternate pathway to becoming a certified classroom teacher. They are intensive, accelerated teacher training programs that place credentialed, qualified educators in critical teacher shortage areas throughout the school system.
