Teachers Needed Now More Than Ever
Update and Renew those Teaching Certificates!
I write to you from my Covid-ridden bed. That’s right, it got me! In fact, when I entered my absence in our staffing program, I had no idea that 300 other staff, including faculty custodians and other essential staff, had recently done the same. Our school was unable to function due to the massive shortage. In short, school closed down! Not because of snow or ice but because we needed substitute teachers!

It’s no secret that our education system is under the gun during this pandemic. Kids and teachers want (and need) to be back in the classroom for real learning to take place. But the reality of this pandemic has us all questioning the best way to safely move forward. Our school board recently increased the pay rate for substitutes 125%. It turns out, schools, like most industries in the era of Covid, are desperate for employment. This is a golden opportunity for those of you who have been questioning re-entering the classroom but not sure how to go about making the jump. Let the Teachers Academy help you get there.
If you’ve been planning to come back to teaching, weren’t sure how to renew your teaching certificate, or maybe you need just a few essential professional development credits or Act 48 hours (as we say in PA!). The Teachers Academy is the only company designed for such an occasion! In fact, being a company composed entirely of teachers, we have our finger on the pulse of education- We know what you need.
The main goal of our company is to help teachers maintain their teaching certificates by creating relevant, affordable courses that can be completed on any schedule. Since our inception in 2014, we have expanded our course catalog to include a variety of topics that include Rock History, Wellness, Distance Teaching, Google Suite, Writer’s Workshop, Mindfulness, and more. You’re sure to find several courses to get you started and more importantly finished with your state’s renewal requirements. We are accredited by several national and international institutions and approved providers in most states including, but not limited to Pennsylvania, Oregon, Texas, North Carolina, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Michigan (to name a few).
