HOUSTON, TX – August 30, 2017 – Teachers of Tomorrow announced that it is offering full scholarships for substitutes and paraprofessionals who want to become fully certified teachers. The organization has created a web page for those interested in the scholarship to become a teacher for each state where the program is accepted.
“Substitutes and Paraprofessionals become the most successful teachers in our program. By providing scholarships to these groups, we can better address a growing teacher shortage,” said Vernon Reaser, CEO of Teachers of Tomorrow. “Substitutes and paraprofessionals already know the culture, the students, the teachers and the staff in our partner schools – it makes sense that they would be best suited to fill critical shortage areas.”
In order to qualify for the full teacher scholarship, substitutes and paraprofessionals must be qualified to become a teacher in their state so they must have a degree from an accredited institution. They must compete the online scholarship application and the full Teachers of Tomorrow application. They can get more details on the following state-specific pages:
Substitutes and Paraprofessionals have until September 30, 2017, to apply for the scholarships and recipients will be selected on October 1st. An immediate notification will go out with the hope that substitutes and paraprofessionals can complete their preparation program and become a fully certified teacher in 2018.
