The Hamden Public School System is committed to finding ways to ensure that our staff is racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse. One of our efforts in this area is our participation in the CREC Teacher Residency Program. If you are interested in becoming a certified teacher in Connecticut, the CREC Teacher Residency Program may be a great opportunity for you. This program differs from many others in that it is a paid residency that leads to Connecticut elementary teacher certification.
CREC leaders and partners gathered at Hamden’s Ridge Hill School with U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal to celebrate the expansion of the program thanks to a federal grant.
