Program Timeline

Program Design

Designed with the hard-working, over-extended professional in mind, TEACH’s functionality and flexibility is unique. The candidate is able to navigate through the 38 online courses offered effectively and efficiently according to his/her time schedule. Only 6 of the 37 courses, or the core courses, are required. All other courses offered are informational & enrichment.

Simultaneously, the candidate is able to bond with program instructors/administrators through  onsite, hands-on workshops/Open House Forums. These discussion opportunities are offered to candidates living in the Austin area. All other candidates are posted videos and are encouraged to participate in school campus/district and/or TEACH Weebly, online workshops.
