Improve your student achievement, AYP and school grade with better prepared teachers - and use the new state grant to help pay the tuition for Florida teachers.

Remember: There is a difference between being highly-qualified and highly-effective in teaching a new subject.

You can be technically highly-qualified if you have a collegiate major or minor or pass the FTCE subject-area test.  However, in either case, if you have not taught the course before, you could benefit from some support.  As teacher accountability systems for improved student achievement are implemented the more important the need for subject-specific instructional and mentoring support.  This is particularly true when a teacher is Not-Highly-Qualified: unavoidably assigned out-of-field (no collegiate major or minor in the subject).

Out-of-field? When a teacher is unavoidably assigned out-of-field (no collegiate major or minor in the subject) you can set yourself on a path to be highly-effective.

Introducing the Expert Systems for Teachers™ Series of over 100 Subject Specific Online Courses to prepare teachers for new assignments and earn CEU's or in-serivce points / hours toward recertification at the same time through university online continuing education.

Qualified but new to a subject?
Would it just help to have instructional support materials (full-year course materials) and mentoring teacher access?
