Residency is the culminating experience of preparation, an extended opportunity to combine content knowledge with your knowledge of curriculum, instruction, and school-aged learners. This is demonstrated by the performance of competencies reflected in evaluative instruments.

Residents are placed in public schools in districts surrounding LSU and in the LSU Laboratory School. Placement decisions are made individually and based on information found in candidate profiles. The goal is to ensure that residents experience a variety of grade levels, school types, and students throughout their program of study.

Our residents are well prepared for residency and entry into the teaching profession. Residents are well supported by School of Education staff, a university supervisor, and a mentor teacher.
