SF EMAT is another new opportunity within SFUSD to become a teacher. SFUSD has partnered with NYU Steinhardt’s School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to bring the Embedded Master of Arts in Teaching (EMAT) residency program to select SFUSD middle schools. The San Francisco EMAT is an innovative master’s and teacher residency program to prepare talented and diverse teachers in English, social studies, math, and the sciences to be successful in reaching and teaching all students. Residents are placed in cohorts for their one-year residency gradually taking on more teaching responsibility with intensive coaching and feedback from NYU’s expert faculty and a teaching mentor. This residency leads to a master’s degree, teaching credential and position in an SFUSD classroom. Learn more at SF EMAT or Facebook.
