Want to Teach in the Wisconsin Schools But Don’t Have an Education Degree?

If you think you want to teach, but you do not have the credentials from an approved Education program that would make you eligible for certification, consider investigating the Milwaukee Teaching Fellows program. It is a competitive program that can help highly qualified candidates with bachelor’s degrees in other areas become certified to teach in Wisconsin as they teach full-time in Milwaukee (and are paid to do so) and pursue the coursework needed for licensure. Our quick read of their website seems to indicate that individuals might be able to teach math, science (if they have majors in those areas), special education, or elementary bilingual education (if fluent in English and Spanish). It can be dangerous to rely on your Editors’ quick reading skills, though, so learn more for yourself by visiting the program’s website at: http://www.milwaukeeteachingfellows.org/.
