In order to be qualified to teach, Greater Nashville corps members are required to take and pass content-specific Praxis exams prior to and during the school year. Corps members must also take a minimum of two courses offered through our university partner, Lipscomb University, in order to receive a transitional teaching license. These courses are specifically designed by Lipscomb University, in collaboration with Teach For America, to meet the needs of corps members. After taking an additional two courses, corps members can become fully licensed and have the option to earn a master's of education by completing further coursework.
