Have you ever wanted to gain your teachers license in mathematics? The Denver Fellow Residency program is a supportive way to gain your Colorado Teachers License and a Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) while getting paid! During the first year of the residency you'll work as a math fellow while learning from an exemplary teacher. You will also take evening courses to complete your MAT.

Denver Math Fellows instruct small groups of students in mathematics. It is a full-time job, working school hours, for an entire school year. You will work with small groups of up to four students at a time. The most important role for Fellows is to develop strong relationships with students and their families. Through these strong relationships and the use of the provided curriculum, your instruction will support students' access to grade level mathematics.

Denver Fellows is an urban education fellowship where students receive individual support in math as part of each school day and fellows are provided a meaningful service year opportunity. 

Many fellows utilize the service year as a pathway into teaching or as a gap year prior to furthering their own education. A state teaching license is NOT required for this position.
