Teaching: More Than a Job (http://www.ets.org/praxis/teaching)

Teaching offers an opportunity for you to affect the world by informing, enlightening and guiding young minds. Teaching is also a career filled with growth potential. If you enjoy helping students grow in knowledge and understanding, then teaching may be right for you.

Boston Teacher Residency (http://www.bostonteacherresidency.org/)

Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) is a master’s program in education that recruits talented, committed individuals of all ages and gives them the tools they need to make an immediate impact in the classrooms of the Boston Public Schools (BPS)

Chicago Teaching Fellows (http://chicagoteachingfellows.ttrack.org/AboutUs/WhoWeWant.aspx)

Chicago Teaching Fellows looks for highly-motivated individuals with diverse personal and professional backgrounds who have the capacity to be successful teaching in one of the districts’ critical-need subjects: high school math, high school science, bilingual education-Spanish, or special education.

Public Policy & Education?  Sure!  (http://www.educationsector.org/publications/growth-models-and-accountability-recipe-remaking-esea)

Education Sector is an independent think tank that challenges conventional thinking in education policy. We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to achieving measurable impact in education policy, both by improving existing reform initiatives and by developing new, innovative solutions to our nation’s most pressing education problems.

What is the Praxis? Is it required to teach?  (http://www.ets.org/praxis)

The Praxis Series™ tests are taken by individuals entering the teaching profession as part of the certification process required by many states and professional licensing organizations. To find out which tests are required for teacher licensure in your state, territory or organization, visit the Educational Testing Services website.

Thinking of Teaching English Abroad?

Our advisors have found these sites.  Be smart and be wise when reviewing these sites and make sure you are not paying for services that you will not use or don’t require, etc.

Foreign Language Teaching Assistantship Program (FLTA): (http://flta.fulbrightonline.org/thinking.html)

Apply to the FLTA if you are:

  • Outgoing and adaptable to changing circumstances
  • Enthusiastic about teaching your native language to American students
  • Ready to become a cultural ambassador interested in meeting people and becoming part of community events and campus activities
  • Willing to take advantage of opportunities presented and to adapt to unexpected situations which may vary from original expectations.

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certification:  (http://www.teflinstitute.com/about-teaching-abroad.php)

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) Certification is an internationally recognized certification for native or fluent speakers to teach English in non-native English speaking countries.  Teaching English is a great way to live in another part of the world and experience the culture as the locals do. You’ll have the opportunity to experience the world first hand, not just as an observer. And best of all, you’ll get paid to be there!

A new sight that interviews people and asks them the questions you would want to ask.  Here’s a link to the education profession.

Teach Abroad links from CSU:  (http://www.csuohio.edu/offices/international/study_abroad/other_program/teach.html)

I figured, “Why reinvent the wheel?”  I will just share this page from Cleveland State University which has a thorough listing and explanation of each site.
