  • Obtain actual teaching experience in an elementary school classroom, which allows the students to apply what they are studying in the classroom to a K-8 classroom setting.

  • Complete a minimum of 45 hours of real-world teaching experience; supporting literacy needs of a diverse population of at-risk students by the end of their 2nd year in the Teacher TRAC Program.
