Info Session for Alternate Route Teaching Program to be Held Dec. 10

The New Pathways to Teaching program has been created to allow individuals who have not completed a traditional teacher-training program the opportunity to become teachers through the New Jersey alternate route system.

There will be an information session at the College on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 6 p.m. in Crabiel Hall on the Edison campus to review the requirements of the program. Please RSVP by calling 732-548-6000, ext. 3144, or emailing, and leave your name and phone number. Parking lot 1 has the nearest parking and parking permits are not needed. In case of inclement weather please check the College’s website,, or call 732-906-2555.

“Most of our participants have always wanted to teach but, for one reason or another, have not had the opportunity,” said Kimberlee Hooper, director of the Office of School Relations. “Others may have developed this interest in teaching later in life, as they are looking for a more meaningful career helping others. Whatever their motivation, New Pathways is the program that can help them fulfill their dreams.”

Participants come from a variety of academic disciplines with a minimum 2.75 grade point average in an undergraduate or graduate degree, and a Certificate of Eligibility.

The Office of School Relations also offers Introduction to Teaching, which is a 24-hour course that covers five weeks and must be completed before applying for a teaching certificate.
