Those holding a non-education bachelor’s degree who want to teach might attend a workshop put on by one of 12 teaching intern programs that the Arizona Department of Education has approved. The Arizona Center for Teacher Preparation helps interested college grads become certified and ready for the classroom through alternative teacher certification.
A free informational meeting takes place Friday, April 22, with two sessions scheduled for 3 and 4 p.m. to choose from, at the Prescott Public Library, Elsea Conference Room.
Prospective teachers study online with the AZCTP, learning how to teach and manage a classroom. Once they have passed a subject area test and completed 45 hours of the Structured English Immersion program, they will be eligible to apply to teach with ADE.
