Great news – if you’re already working as a paraprofessional or substitute, you’re one step closer to job security. In the coming months, many people are likely to face job loss. When this happens, a surge of new paraprofessionals and substitute teachers will pour into your school district. As someone who has elected this path by choice, don’t risk reduced hours or displacement. It’s time to lock down your job by applying to become a teacher. Here are three reasons why:
You’ve been in the classroom, and we honor your experience. Here at Teachers of Tomorrow, we focus on helping people forge new paths without having to retrace completed steps. When you enroll in our program, your experience comes with you – there’s no starting over. The hours you’ve accumulated working in the classroom can be applied toward some of the required Field Based Experience hours*. Our program is straightforward and designed with you in mind. By transferring your hard-earned experience, it will make a simple and time-conscious program even faster. With the influx of new paraprofessionals and substitutes inevitably headed toward your school district, now is the time to act.
The program is simple, but that’s not the only reason to apply. If the thought of becoming a teacher gives you pause, here’s a little something we’ve learned: you make the best teacher!
You’ve been working with students in the classroom – many classrooms – and benefit from witnessing firsthand how different rooms operate. You’ve gathered what works well, and what needs improvement. Day after day, you show up to help students and teachers in need. Consider what your own classroom might look like – it’s exciting!
Become a teacher, not only because you have a leg-up in the process. Become a teacher, not only because your previous experience well prepares you for this role. Become a teacher because you are needed. Teachers are desperately needed, and you can help make a difference.
School districts are endlessly thankful for your continued aid and support. They see you, in their classrooms, striving to make a difference. Your commitment does not go unnoticed, and school districts would love to place you in their classrooms as more than temporary support.
