GRAMBLING, LA (KSLA) -
Grambling State University is offering a new way for students to become certified teachers in hopes of addressing shortages in North Louisiana in teachers for subjects like math and science.
"In Louisiana, where we rank in education as far as in a rural area, as far as having highly qualified, really qualified math and science teachers, it's a challenge," says program recruiter Milton Jackson. "And so the federal government endowed us with a grant to kind of rectify that problem."
With that grant, GSU's College of Education has started a new program called the Alternative Teacher Certification Project (ATCP). It's open to anyone who has a bachelor's degree with at least 2.50 cumulative GPA and wants to become a teacher. Admission requirements include completion of an application packet and specifies minimum ACT or SAT and Praxis scores.
According to GSU's brochure, the ATCP aims to recruit "highly motivated mid-career changers and recent college graduates," offering a $4,500 stipend to those seeking certification in Biology, Chemistry, General Science, Elementary Education, English, Physics, Math or Special Education, as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree.
The program also offers "intensive professional development as well as technological devices that can be used in the classroom."
In return, students must commit to teach 3 consecutive years in a partner high-need school district.
Those interested in enrolling can contact Milton Jackson at (318)274-2236 or email@example.com
