Our Alternative Licensure Program hires real teachers with real experience to guide and train our candidates to success - every step of the way.
The schools in your community need your skills and experience to increase the number of effective teachers in your area. We prepare our candidates to collaborate effectively at all levels—with other teachers and learning specialists, parents, students, administrators, counselors, and community members—in order to facilitate the success of all students.
Aspire to Teach® preparation also includes application of content knowledge, theory, curriculum, assessment, and research as they flexibly and reflectively make decisions that support the success of diverse learners.
Ultimately, our goal is that all candidates—whether elementary teachers, secondary teachers or special educators—will be able to have a significant positive impact in diverse educational school settings and, as teacher leaders, will act with a sense of urgency to support equity in education for all children.
