Requirements And Qualifications
It is a rarity in our industry to see a salaried short-term teaching position. There are more opportunities to volunteer teach, but few to be an actual professional teacher. This is a truly unique program!
To qualify, you'll need a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree. We love when current classroom teachers participate. You can also be a recent college grad and no, you don't need an education degree.
