The Compass Alternative Certification Teacher Academy gives talented professionals who are college graduates a chance to become one of those teachers while making a difference in the Dallas community.
Teach where you are needed most. Dallas ISD students face overwhelming challenges every day. We are looking for professionals who are ready to make a change in their career and a change in a student’s life.
Our program is centered on effectiveness. You will develop your teaching knowledge through hands-on, practice based instruction.
We offer the eligibility to receive a standard teacher certification in one year.
Nearly 90% of our students come from economically disadvantage homes and 40% are still learning English? Every student deserves a great teacher who can help them break through barriers and build the life they dream of. ARE YOU READY TO BE THAT TEACHER?
