Teacher hiring decisions are made by school principals and district administrators. Therefore, no teacher certification program, including iteach can guarantee you a teaching position. There is an alternative option to the internship route to gain the field experience, however. This option is the Clinical Placement route.
How To Be Placed
You will have to apply for this placement. It is 14 weeks and can start anytime up until Feb 1. We will observe you three times over the 14 weeks. You must have your content test passed for the area in which you are a paraprofessional.
We will need one teacher assigned as your cooperating teacher. The district also has to agree to this placement.
Your remaining payments will start when you start the placement and can be spread out evenly over the entire school year. You will need all other requirements including having your PPR passed during the 14-week placement.
When you meet the above requirements, please email – firstname.lastname@example.org – to request the application.
