Denton, TX, November 1, 2016 (Newswire.com) - iteachU.S. announces the launch of iteachNEVADA, which offers the first fully online, private pathway to teacher certification in the state of Nevada.
Approved by the Nevada Department of Education’s Commission on Professional Standards, iteachNEVADA offers seven online instructional courses designed to prepare teachers for success in the classroom. For the first time ever, potential teachers can start their teaching training for just $250 and receive full licensure for less than $4,500.00.
Written by experienced education experts, the innovative courses are teacher-friendly and practical. Teachers seeking certification in Nevada complete each of the seven online courses in sequence and at their own pace — from anywhere and at any time.
In Nevada, iteachU.S. offers certification for elementary (grades K–8) and secondary (grades 7–12) education in the areas of biological science, physical science, mathematics, language arts, and social studies, and in physical education for all grades.
iteachU.S. is the nation’s only non-university (institute of higher learning) organization to receive national accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Led by innovators who are committed to lifelong learning and to meeting the changing needs of the educational world, iteachU.S. is a teacher preparation company made by teachers, for teachers.
Diann Huber, founder and president of iteachU.S., said that accreditation proves the quality of the iteachU.S. programs. “Accreditation benefits candidates in our program because it shows prospective employers that our teachers and principals are well-prepared for their jobs,” Huber said. “We are accredited by the same organization that accredits the some of the nation's top university programs.” For more than a decade, iteachU.S. has been working hard to help teachers succeed — simply and quickly.
iteachU.S. (www.iteachus.net) is a competency-based educator preparation program that combines the convenience of online learning with the support of face-to-face mentorship. Dr. Diann Huber founded iteachTEXAS in 2003 to help talented people become teachers while avoiding the high costs and time commitments of some traditional educator preparation programs. The model she created was so successful at preparing great educators on a large scale that the program grew into iteachU.S. in 2007. Today, iteachU.S. serves Texas, Louisiana, Hawaii, and Nevada, offering state-approved certification programs in each state. In 2012, iteachU.S. earned accreditation by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). iteachU.S. is the first and only non-university educator preparation program to achieve this distinction.
