Trey knew that teaching is a stable profession, and it offers mobility. Unsure if life would take him on a move, Trey knew that once d, you can teach anywhere. The career appealed to him. When a good friend mentioned an open coaching position at a nearby school, Trey knew he could be a good fit for it having played ball in high school and college. Similarly, when a science teacher position became available, Trey was confident he was the candidate for the job.
With a degree in fisheries and wildlife sciences, he was ready to get the next generation excited about science. Now, Trey is a Missouri teacher, coach, and mentor.
Once Trey decided to teach, he looked into teacher certification programs accepted in Missouri and found American Board. Instead, you can get your teacher certification for considerably less money and be just as qualified. However, Trey also notes the importance of getting classroom experience.
He suggests substitute teaching, or making sure you have time to work with veteran teachers. Notably, in most states, American Board graduates participate in a district-run mentor program during their first year teaching. He completed his required contact hours before applying for the state teaching certificate.
Similarly, he found that after spending a week familiarizing himself with teaching terminology, pedagogy content clicked with him. He also had help from a colleague who was a recent American Board graduate.
Consequently, Trey passed both required exams in back-to-back months! He quickly secured a full-time teaching position. They closed for spring break and subsequently remained closed for the rest of the school year. But the start of the school year brought a fresh start, and Trey and his peers were well prepared.
With the exception of 2 weeks in November, his school remained open for in-person teaching throughout the year. Trey teaches th grade science but notes that the 8th grade-sophomore classes are his favorite.
Those middle grades I teach, the students look up to you and still have a good time in class with you. Equally important, Trey knows the value of being a good role model for his students. Or they are from a split family and perhaps their interaction with you at school is the only interaction they are having with a male role model that goes to work every day and looks out for them every day. Because of quality local educators like Trey, American Board is able to continue training teachers across the country with a strong reputation for success. More than 12, American Board trained teachers step up each school year to ensure their students continue to learn.
