- Apply. You’ll need to have some information handy; test scores, transcripts and a resume. Don’t be surprised if you get a call from our founder, Rowan Claypool, after you hit submit.
- Talk to Dustin. He’s our Recruitment Coordinator, and will e-mail you to set-up an initial phone conversation. This call will give you more information about next steps in the application process and answer any questions you may have.
- Get invited to Recruiting Weekend. This is where you’ll finally get a chance to visit Louisville. You’ll meet current participants, the Teach Kentucky staff and have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the University of Louisville and Jefferson County Public Schools. Did we mention that most of your expenses are paid?
- Take 1. a Praxis Subject Assessment and 2. the CASE -OR- GRE. The Praxis Subject Assessment will tell us how well you know your content area. The CASE/GRE will measure basic verbal, writing and math skills. You can read more about these exams on the University of Louisville website. ETS, the parent company of Praxis and GRE, provides inexpensive online study materials for each exam here. In most cases, these exams can be completed AFTER the recruiting weekend.
After the recruiting weekend, the real work begins. If you’re extended a spot in the program, you’ll start the next phase; gaining admission to an MAT program, applying for a teaching job in Jefferson County Public Schools or surrounding county, and starting to plan your move to our glorious city, Louisville, Kentucky.
If you have any questions about applying, feel free to contact us.
Earlier applications are often the most successful applications. Due to the timing of the required PRAXIS exams we strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
