Recently I’ve been told of a special alternate route for prospective educators in New Jersey seeking certification — for which I can qualify!
And you could too!
Good teachers are the greatest resources a community can have. Whether all tax paying citizens agree or not, a strong public school system is key to a strong community. To have a strong school system, you have to have a passionate & competent staff, which is majority educators.
Back to topic: in New Jersey (& maybe other states as well), certain people qualify to become certified teachers without having to go the traditional “Bachelor Degree” route.
