Beginning Teacher Assistance

Registration open for 2021-2022

All teachers with a Missouri Initial Professional Certificate (IPC) must participate in a beginning teacher assistance program before upgrading their certificate. “I Can Do It” is designed for teachers in their first two years and any teacher who wants to improve their classroom management skills. Teachers with several years of experience also find these sessions helpful. Missouri NEA partners with Maryville University to offer a meaningful program that meets the beginning teacher assistance program certification requirement.
