New Teacher Fast Track Program at TCC

By  | 

Looking for a career change? Maybe a career in teaching is what you've been missing.

Tallahassee Community College has made it easier with a new fast track program. It allows those with a college degree a chance to receive their teacher certification within the span of two semesters.

Program officials say now the need for new teachers is greater than ever.

"There is a huge wave of teacher retirement. There are opportunities for people working in other areas, and so the need for teachers is great. In the next few years in Florida, we are going to need 30,000 new teachers," says TCC professor Jeanne O'Kon

For those interested in the program, two workshops are set for November 14 and December 5.
