The Teacher Academy Project (TAP) is designed to prepare individuals as certified secondary education teachers. Candidates for TAP must hold an undergraduate degree in a major related to a secondary (grades 7-12) content area such as mathematics, science, or foreign language, etc.
TAP candidates complete certification coursework while interning in a participating Metropolitan Omaha Educational Consortium (MOEC) school district. The graduate work completed during this program may be applied toward completion of a Masters degree in secondary education. Project participants will be enrolled as full time students, which will allow for the completion of the certification requirements in one academic year. This program is offered once each year.
The sequence of coursework for the TAP program begins in the summer sessions. These classes address initial education content which prepares candidates to begin working in classroom settings in the fall while they continue with additional courses. The spring semester completes the professional education requirements with student teaching as the capstone experience.
