After you apply, the next steps are as follows:
Yes, we are required by the Arizona Department of Education to collect and store official transcripts.
You can send your official transcripts in two different ways. The quickest and preferred method is to have your university send them electronically. If your university does not have an electronic option, we also accept transcripts sent via standard mail to our Houston, Texas office. Transcripts do not need to be in a sealed envelope from your university. We can accept an open, original copy. However, we cannot accept scanned, faxed, or photocopied transcripts.
If you are sending transcripts electronically, your university can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are sending transcripts via standard mail, you can address them to:
Arizona Teachers of Tomorrow
2401 Fountain View Dr. Suite 700
Houston, TX 77057
Once we receive your transcripts, we are usually able to process them within 3-5 business days. We will notify you as soon as we are finished.
Before you can enroll, the following items must be on file:
Once we have your application, processed transcripts, and completed questionnaire on file, we will email you a formal Program Admission Offer. To accept the offer and enroll, simply click on the link in the email to set up your Intern Portal and submit your enrollment fee. Once you accept your Program Admission Offer and submit the enrollment fee, you are enrolled!
After you apply, we will email you a short online questionnaire to assess your strengths as a teacher. The questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will help you and your Program Advisor when creating your personalized path to earning your certification!
After you enroll, you are officially part of the Arizona Teachers family! You may now get started on your online teacher training!
Arizona Teachers will email you information to help you create and set up your Intern Portal. You’ll soon become very familiar with your Intern Portal. You will find helpful checklists, your online coursework, and countless resources to help you prepare for the classroom.
Your online teaching training courses are hosted on a platform called Canvas. You can locate your courses under the “Training Progress” page of your Intern Portal. When you click on the course title, it will redirect you to Canvas.
If you’re having trouble enrolling courses in Canvas or would like a bit more tech support, we offer a great optional webinar to help show you around. You can register for this free webinar in your Intern Portal!
We frequently post new, relevant articles, share resources, and keep you informed about all things teaching on our Teaching in Arizona blog!
