Mission: Strengthen California’s capacity to provide equity-driven, clinically rich, teacher preparation and support.

Vision: California’s powerfully prepared, diverse, and thriving teacher workforce advances educational equity and justice, providing the learning supports that ensure every student reaches their full potential.

The California Teacher Residency Lab connects and strengthens partners who are preparing effective teachers through high-quality clinical experiences.

Lab participants learn from one another and from experts, strengthen their intra-program partnerships and residency programs, and engage in formal and informal networking to support continuous improvement.

The Lab is designed to help partners accelerate the progress of their respective programs while collectively advancing a vision for high-quality residencies that incorporate research-based characteristics.
