All members are expected to become familiar with their program policy guide as it will serve as your roadmap for teacher certification.
All members are encouraged to maintain an online application. Your online application will serve as your file cabinet, where you will upload and store important documentation required for teaching. Documentation may include official transcripts, exam scores, and a current resume.
