Get sustained clinical classroom experience while studying for your degree and Initial license.
We collaborate with a number of schools and institutions to offer high-quality classroom residency experiences for students who wish to earn a degree and teaching license through working directly in a classroom. Programs are full-time and can be completed in approximately one year.
In our teacher residency Collaborative Internship programs, students spend a year in one of six independent or three public schools in Massachusetts, earning an Initial teaching license and a Master of Education degree in either Early Childhood (PreK-2), Elementary (1-6), Middle School (5-8), or Special Education (Moderate PreK-8 or 5-12 or Severe). » See the Collaborative Internships page for more information and participating schools.

The Partnership School Initiative is a design research partnership between Lesley University and the Cambridge Public Schools. Centering on a collaboration between Lesley's School of Education and the K-8 Kennedy-Longfellow School in East Cambridge, the project's goal is to broaden, deepen, and increase student learning at the Kennedy-Longfellow by fully integrating technology tools and resources into the school's curriculum and instruction.Over a three-year period, educators at Lesley and the Kennedy-Longfellow will collaboratively design and implement technology-rich curricula and pedagogies that fully differentiate instruction while strengthening the bonds between students, the school, families, and the community. The Lesley School of Education, the Kennedy-Longfellow School, and the Cambridge Public Schools share a common commitment to equity, diversity, and inquiry and imagination as foundations for learning. Lessons learned from the project will be shared with other schools, districts, and the community of educational scholars and researchers.The project is funded by a philanthropic gift from Albert E. and Katharine W.
