For Colleagues

Thank you for being a vital part of the Ohio Resident Educator Program! 

The Ohio Resident Educator Program can be envisioned as a journey on a path of continued professional learning that leads educators to more effective practices and excellence in teaching. The four-year residency program consists of a system of support and mentoring, assessing teacher learning, and exploring leadership within the profession. 


As a Colleague, you will be working with Resident Educators who are in their final year of residency and are exploring leadership within the district. You have been selected to help your Resident Educator transition from residency to a 5-year professional teaching license in the state of Ohio.  The Colleague and Resident Educator plan and implement local leadership activities within the school, district, or state. Please work closely with your district Program Coordinator to fully understand the local requirements of serving as a Colleague.

Below, you will find information to assist you in understanding your role as well as tools and resources available to you as an Ohio Resident Educator Colleague.
