• SUNY Oswego Clinical Residencies Bring Network of Benefits

  • Both teacher candidates and their mentor teachers extol the benefits of the yearlong residency they enjoy through SUNY Oswego and its clinical partner schools. Residents gain not only extended time in the classroom but also the holistic perspective of a full school year, from setup to end-of-year testing and summer farewells—and they are “part of the fabric of the school,” says Grant Middle School teacher Annie Higgins-Shild. Oswego Assistant Dean Kristen Munger explains that the residents also transmit new knowledge to both school and university partners that results in simultaneous renewal of practice.
