A little about ourselves
The Ohio Resident Educator Program began in 2011, and has evolved into a comprehensive multi-year induction program, resulting in Professional licensure with successful completion of the program and the Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA). The Ohio Resident Educator Program can be envisioned as the first years of a journey or the first steps on a path of continued professional learning, leading educators to more effective practices and excellence in teaching. While the purposes of each continue to differ: licensure (RE) and evaluation (OTES) the teacher residency program is designed to fit alongside with the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES), making with clear linkages and connections between the two.
Beginning with the 2015-2016 School year, several changes have been implemented. The following presentation provides an orientation to the Ohio Resident Educator Program. It includes important information about the roles and responsibilities of all program participants such as Resident Educators, instructional mentors, program coordinators, principals, and RESA facilitators.
