Time’s running out to apply for the Compass Alternative Certification Teacher Academy of Dallas ISD. The March 27 deadline gives prospective candidates a large enough window to completely work through the application.
The Compass program prepares professionals wanting to transition into education to become classroom leaders. Senior Talent Leader Dominique McCain emphasized the support provided throughout the program to give candidates the best chance for success.
“The most important thing for our candidates to know is that they are not in this alone,” said McCain. “We know teaching is not easy, so our program combines direct training, live coaching and actual classroom experience to give you the confidence to be an effective teacher.”
Compass staff also encourage current teachers or others who may know someone interested in transitioning into a teaching career to refer them through the online referral form. The district has a particular need for bilingual applicants.
