    The San Mateo Union High School District is excited to announce that we have partnered with Alder Graduate School of Education’s Teacher Residency Program, a program that works with classified employees to help them earn their teaching credential and Masters in just one year, while getting hands on experience with students in San Mateo County Schools.
    The candidates work closely with a mentor teacher, and learning alongside other residents through seminars. They offer tuition scholarships of up to $10,000 to specifically support those whose experiences and identities reflect the communities we serve, and State grants of up to $25,000 are available to teacher residents this year.
    If you were unable to make the October 13 information session, you can schedule time to meet with Janie Garza one-to-one to learn more.
