Teach 4 Collier
Teach 4 Collier is a CCPS Grow Your Own initiative aimed at recruiting career changers, or those with a four-year degree into teaching professionals. This community-based meeting is set-up as a comprehensive review to get a better understanding of the teaching profession. All community career-changers are encouraged to attend.
The program shifts gears into the certification process, covering in depth the process for obtaining teaching certification, as a non-education major. Any person with a four-year degree, is eligible for Florida Teaching Certification in any area, so long as, they have access to their college/university transcripts, applies for certification with the Florida Department of Education, and can pass a subject area examination in the subject of their choosing. In lieu of passing a subject area exam, some with a 4-yr degree may qualify for temporary certification based on their areas of study.
