Our LEAP to Teacher coordinator will help tailor the right personal path for you towards teacher certification or any other career path that you desire. For our future teachers, initial certification can be obtained at the undergraduate or the graduate level, depending on the desired certification areas. Choosing the right path for you begins with a conversation and an evaluation. We look at number and type of transfer credits applied, cost of education, number of semester needed to complete your degree as well as the relative marketability of different certification areas.These are just some of the factors involved in making this important decision.
We offer free courses and workshops for our future teachers including: preparation workshops for the NY State Teacher Certification exams including EAS, Multi Subject CST for Early Childhood and Childhood and Writing for Future Teachers course. Our writing consultant is available for in person, online or telephone sessions. He also offers workshops on library and database research, research writing and writing a winning personal statement for your admissions application.
