Aspiring Teachers Program
The Aspiring Teachers Program is focused on encouraging talented students to pursue teaching as a profession.
Our goals include:
Springfield Public Schools has chosen to adopt the Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention and Advancement's (CERRA) curriculum for both the Teacher Cadet (high school) and Pro-Team (middle school) programs. CERRA is based in South Carolina and was founded in 1985. Focused on increasing the number of students in the education pipeline and recruiting and retaining qualified, caring, and competent teachers, CERRA offers programs and supports from middle school through induction and mentorship and into teacher leadership.
CERRA programs have experienced great success and are spreading around the globe as more and more districts, states, and countries find themselves facing a shortage of teachers.
