TEACH Delta Region Project offers path to becoming a certified teacher; Open House on Jan. 30

Explore the possibilities. Become a certified teacher, through the TEACH Delta Region Project (formerly known as TeachNortheast), the alternative teacher certification program in the ULM College of Education and Human Development. The name changed when ULM partnered with Jackson State University in the initiative to recruit mid-career professionals into the teaching profession.

TEACH Delta Region Project will host an Open House on Wed., Jan. 30 from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the ULM Student Center, room 170. There will also be an Information Session on Monday, Feb. 11 at 5 p.m. in the ULM Student Union Building, Ballroom C.

Louisiana’s students need more high quality teachers to ensure that they learn, and TEACH Delta Region Project intends to meet that challenge. Over the next five years, their goal is to bring approximately 350 certified and highly qualified teachers to school districts in the Louisiana/Mississippi Delta region.

Through TEACH Delta Region Project, individuals can instruct in their own classrooms while earning teaching certification. Additionally, the program offers training and support for participants over the three-year period. Eligible candidates can receive a stipend of up to $5,000 during this time. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and a 2.5 undergraduate grade point average to apply.

The application deadline for summer entry is Monday, March 31. For more information, contact the TEACH Delta Region Project at (318) 342-3000 or by e-mail at
