The American Board, a non-profit organization dedicated to recruiting and certifying community-based teachers in Florida, will host a public event on how local residents can become certified Florida teachers.
The event will be held on Thursday, April 19 at 7 pm at the University of North Florida Student Union Room in Jacksonville and will be led by Florida Teacher Certification Specialist Breanna Shaw.
The event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required for entry.
“Anyone with a bachelor’s degree can become a full-time teacher within a year as long as they plan the right path.” Shaw said. “We are searching for people who have real-life experience and want to apply that experience in the classroom.”
At the event, attendees will learn what to expect in a career as a teacher and receive advisement on a personalized path to certification.
Shaw can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or (904) 482-3845 to answer questions about the event or about the paths to teacher certification in Florida.
