How to become a Mo. teacher
The American Board, a non-profit dedicated to recruiting and certifying community-based teachers in Missouri, will host a public event on how local residents can become certified Missouri teachers.
Attendees will learn what to expect in a career as a teacher and receive advisement on a personalized path to certification.
The event will be held at 6:30 pm, Tuesday, July 10 at the Osage Community Center - Room 3 D, 1624 N. Kings Highway in Cape Girardeau and will be led by Missouri Teacher Certification Specialist Rachel Pryor.
"Anyone with a bachelor's degree can become a full-time teacher within a year as long as they plan the right path." Pryor said. "We are searching for people who have real-life experience and want to apply that experience in the classroom."
