TeachDETROIT: About us

Wayne State University launched a new program in its College of Education called TeachDETROIT in 2015, designed to prepare teachers to work in Detroit schools. TeachDETROIT joins the ranks of other urban teacher residency programs around the country including Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, and Philadelphia, but is unique in its focus on preparing teachers specifically for teaching in Detroit, through an intensive 18 months of fieldwork and coursework leading to teacher certification. TeachDETROIT students earn a master's degree in teaching along with a teaching certificate, or can complete a BA while in the program, and will be prepared to serve the families in Detroit.
