    Has anyone heard of this program?
    It's a 9-month certification-only program that leads to a license for your own state.
    They also have a year-long Master's program, but I don't know why anyone would want to have "Teach-Now Graduate School of Education" on their Master's degree; it would look so fake/cheap.
    It just doesn't seem legit to me, yet I can't find anything bad about it.
    They do require student teaching, but what about edTPA?
    Same with TeacherReady.
    Would these programs actually prepare you to teach? Help me understand.

    I have never heard of that one. Sorry! I was in an area where teachers were really needed many yrs ago. They had a program called Vista ( if I remember correctly. lol) that sounds like the same idea. The Vista workers took classes and started teaching pretty quickly.
    Just in my experience, they were not remotely ready to teach. However, they got my respect for a trait many had in common. They were very idealistic and not opposed to speaking their minds politely. They often said what others were thinking. I never knew one though that lasted more than a year. They only had that program where I was for a couple of years.
