Pathway to Teaching Program

Pathway to Teaching was created to assist current employees who have a bachelor’s degree in something other than education who might want to become certified teachers. This is a competitive process.  Qualified employees will need to submit an application, write a personal statement, and submit letters of reference. From the pool of applicants, finalists will be chosen to participate in an interview. The award recipients will be selected from the candidates chosen for an interview.

Once admitted to the program, participants will receive up to $4,000 annually from the district for up to two years to assist with the costs of obtaining teaching certification at an approved college or university. Participants will receive this financial assistance in return for a commitment to teach in the St. Joseph School District for at least three years after attaining their teacher certification.

If you are interested in becoming a teacher and want to learn more about the district’s Pathway to Teaching program, you can access the program description and agreement below.
