FIND OUT IF TEACHING IS RIGHT FOR YOU!
Are you interested in becoming a teacher but aren’t sure if it’s right for you? The Paraeducator and Explorers Program (PEP) is designed to give current paraeducators and individuals exploring the teaching profession a glimpse into the ESD-U teacher certificate program while earning clock hours toward the General or Advanced Paraeducator Certificate requirements.
Participants in PEP attend ESD-U seminars on important topics for educators, alongside ESD-U teacher candidates working towards certification. When PEP is successfully completed, participants may choose to apply for the ESD-U teacher certification program, and the seminar clock hours for PEP will count towards ESD-U seminar requirements.
For the upcoming 22-23 cohort, only individuals within the ESD 112 service region will be eligible for PEP.
