A graduate of the University of Arizona, Angelica McGhee joined Dallas Teacher Residency following a year of substitute teaching at a Title-1 elementary school in Phoenix, Arizona. Following her year of substitute teaching, Angelica was offered an opportunity to join the school as a teacher while pursuing an alternative teacher certification pathway. She chose to postpone her entry into full-time teaching in order to focus on purposeful clinical teaching and coursework that aligned theory and practice.
Angelica spent her residency year teaching 3rd grade at Dallas ISD’s Ben Milam elementary school and was described by her host principal “as the absolute best program resident she has had the opportunity to host.”
Angelica truly embodies the mission, vision, and values of the Dallas Teacher Residency which was reflected in her being recognized as a national teacher resident of the year candidate by the National Center for Teacher Residencies.
Angelica has an innate desire to contribute to the teaching profession as a leader, has demonstrated the ability to drive student academic outcomes, and most importantly, embraces a growth mindset.
