(Jan. 25, 2010)--The UTSA Academy for Teacher Excellence will host information sessions for the Accelerated Teacher Education Program (A-TEP) at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 26 in Main Building Room 0.204 on the UTSA Main Campus and Tuesday, Feb. 9 in Buena Vista Street Building Room 1.322 at the UTSA Downtown Campus.

A-TEP is a transition-to-teaching program funded by the Department of Education. The comprehensive teacher preparation program prepares and certifies mathematics, science and special education teachers.

Prerequisites for the program are:

  • Bachelor's degree in math or science, or a degree in a math- or science-related field of study or a human services or human-related field of study
  • 24 credit hours in the content area for which student is seeking certification (with 12 hours of upper-level course work in math or science)
  • 3.0 G.P.A. for the last 60 hours completed

The Academy for Teacher Excellence was established as a hub for school districts, community colleges and UTSA to collaboratively research, design, implement and evaluate educational programs that address emerging, statewide and local educational issues associated with a growing diverse student population. A major focus is the implementation of a Title V Hispanic Serving Institutions grant to leverage resources in the community to better prepare teachers in classrooms with a diverse student population.
