Meet TeacherReady teacher Sara Rabb at Oakcrest Elementary School in the Escambia County School District, Florida. Ms. Rabb earned a professional teaching certificate through TeacherReady, an online alternative certification program and a member of the NCATE accredited educator preparation institute of the University of West Florida. As an alternative certification program, TeacherReady provides individuals with a bachelor’s degree in any subject area and opportunity to earn a professional teaching certificate in any of the subject areas offered by the State of Florida. On her classroom web page Ms. Rabb writes:
This is my seventh year teaching at Oakcrest. I teach fourth-grade Science and Social Studies. My students know that I have very high expectations. Watching them succeed gives me great joy.
We invite you to visit Ms. Rabb’s classroom website to get a glimpse of her engaged students; on the site, Ms. Rabb also shares her expectations:
Come to class prepared: Planner, homework, good attitude.
Let me know if you need help.
Like so many of our TeacherReady teachers who want to teach as a second-career, prior to teaching Sara was an environmental editor and reporter at the Pensacola News Journal. Now sharing her talent and career experience with fourth-graders at Oakcrest Elementary, the students are the winners… as you can see by visiting her classroom web page and viewing her students.
As we close in on the new school year, we’re excited to share about a great teacher, Ms. Sara Rabb, who just happens to be a TeacherReady teacher. Know someone who would be a great teacher?
