A happy student, listening to a lesson.

As the nation faces an unprecedented teacher shortage, the need for teachers has grown exponentially. iteach helps fill this void by enabling paraprofessionals, substitute teachers and others seeking to become teachers to get the education they need to become licensed. Our competency-based program combines the convenience of online learning with a full year of face-to-face mentorship during a teaching residency.

iteach was founded in 2003 to help talented four-year college graduates to become teachers while avoiding the high costs and time commitments of some traditional educator preparation programs.

In 2012, iteach earned accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation of
Teacher Education (NCATE). In 2019, iteach was accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). iteach is the only non-university educator preparation program to achieve this distinction.
