Become a Florida Teacher

College graduates are still looking for jobs that relate to their bachelor’s degree, but theirs is still a way for these young adults to get into the professional workforce.

The American Board, a non-profit dedicated to recruiting and certifying teachers in Florida will host a public event on how local residents can become certified Florida teachers. Attendees will learn what to expect in a career as a teacher and receive advisement on a personalized path to certification.

The event will be Wednesday, May 16 at 6 p.m. at the Gulf Breeze Recreation Center located at 800 Shoreline Drive in Gulf Breeze. Florida Teacher Certification Specialist, Jude Paul will lead the lecture. The event is free and open to the public.

“Anyone with a bachelor’s degree can become a full-time teacher within a year as long as they plan the right path.” Paul said. “We are searching for people who have real-life experience and want to apply that experience in the classroom.”
