WCU offers courses for alternate route teaching

This is a news release from William Carey University

Individuals interested in pursuing a Mississippi teacher's license through the alternate route can take the two necessary courses during the five-week second summer term in July and August at William Carey University.

The courses, including classroom management and tests, measurements and evaluations, will meet beginning the week of July 6 and will end the week of August 7. In order to become licensed, teacher candidates must successfully complete both courses and have passing scores on both the Praxis Core and Praxis II examinations.

After completion of all requirements, candidates are eligible to receive a three-year interim teacher's license and can be employed by a school district. During this time, candidates are also enrolled in an internship course in which they are monitored in their classrooms and attend planned Saturday learning sessions. After completion of the one-year internship course, candidates are eligible to receive a five-year license.

For more information on the alternate route, contact the School of Education at (601) 318-6600 or email Dr. Ben Burnett, dean, at bburnett@wmcarey.edu. Students may apply online and view course schedules at www.wmcarey.edu.
