Gain Invaluable Teaching Experience at Its Best

The GCDS co-teacher program employs 25 college graduates in a one- or two-year placement, facilitating entry into the elementary and early childhood teaching profession. The program offers opportunities to explore all aspects of an elementary classroom, while teaching under the mentorship of a lead teacher and enjoying the benefits of participation in a vibrant cohort.

Classroom experience is supplemented with a professional development program featuring noted guest speakers and a seminar series.
