To all who have served: Thank You!
Whether you’ve been deployed repeatedly for six years or retired after twenty, whether you’re a military spouse with a lifetime of transition or you’ve just tied the knot, whatever your circumstances, TEACH-NOW wants to say Thank You and we want to help you find what’s next with our new Veterans Initiative!
As you think about a new career, TEACH-NOW presents an opportunity to leverage your skills to continue serving your country, now leading our children to a bright future as a classroom teacher.
Our online certification program can help you become a certified elementary or secondary school teacher in minimal time with maximum success. Our unique program design will get you a teaching certification that goes with you wherever life takes you next!
Why the TEACH-NOW Veterans Initiative?
From the start, you have the option to be a part of a cohort comprised entirely from the military community. This is your team. You share a common mission and together you work towards graduation.
The TEACH-NOW Veterans Initiative is based on a classroom experience. Cohorts of 10-15 individuals meet in a Virtual Classroom with a dedicated Instructor. There are discussions and collaborative group activities. You’ll have real-world assignments designed to showcase what you’ve learned. You’re expected to show up, pay attention, participate, and work with your teammates.
Additionally, the TEACH-NOW Veterans Initiative provides personal support throughout the certification and licensing process to help you get your teaching certificate and enable you to teach in whichever state or country you wish to. This increases the portability that regardless of where your family goes, your career goes with you.
What Are My Options?
Through the TEACH-NOW Veterans Initiative, you choose either a 9-month teacher preparation program culminating in teacher certification or a 12-month Master’s in Education degree that can include earning your teaching certificate. More information about these programs are here.
Through the TEACH-NOW Veterans Initiative, veterans, active duty military, reservists, spouses and children receive a $1,000 tuition discount for the teacher preparation certificate program and a $1,500 tuition discount for the Masters in Education degree program. With the tuition discount, the total cost of these programs are $5,000 and $11,500 respectively.
