  • Have selected a high needs subject for their academic specialties such as mathematics, science, special education, English as a second language or early childhood education.
  • Have many hours of classroom experience thru volunteering in a school setting and substitute teaching.
  • Are flexible about what subjects and grades they will teach.
  • Are prepared to teach in a rural or urban school.
