GISD Announces G.R.E.A.T. Teachers Program

Godley ISD is excited to partner with Teachworthy as we develop a "Grow Your Own" teaching network G.R.E.A.T. (Grow, Recruit, Educate, And Train) Teachers Program!
 
Teachworthy works with school districts across the state to help current paraprofessionals earn their degrees through Indiana Wesleyan University and become certified teachers, while getting hands-on experience and on-the-job training in our district. Additionally, we will be working with Mrs. Burke in our Teacher Education program at Godley High School to identify students who are interested in becoming teachers. The students who are interested have the possibility of being interviewed and hired to work at one of our primary campuses while earning their degree and teacher certification!
 
The district applied for, and received, grant money from the state to begin this program, so we will be able to help those who are accepted into the program pay for a portion of their fees and courses. As we face a statewide teacher shortage, this program will allow us to keep our best and brightest right here at home while they continue their education and we prepare them to teach "The Godley Way". This is a wonderful opportunity for Godley and we look forward to helping ensure we continue placing a life-changing teacher in every classroom for years to come!
