How iteach became the nation's highest quality alternative certification provider...
It all started when Dr. Diann Huber’s son came to her expressing his interest in becoming a teacher but without having to invest the time and money to get a master’s degree. As a Director of a university teacher preparation program, Dr. Huber understood her son’s perspective and thought there had to be an alternative path for smart, committed people like him to get into a classroom.
Dr. Huber develops a business plan for a new pathway for college graduates to become teachers.
Dr. Huber resigns from her role and establishes iteach. Upon approval from the TEA, iteach Texas opens and helps more than 300 teachers become certified.
The iteach program receives national accreditation from CAEP (formerly NCATE).
iteach launches in Louisiana.
iteach launches in Hawaii.
iteach launches in Nevada.
iteach becomes part of K12 Coalition, a collective of innovative education organizations committed to improving K-12 education.
iteach launches in Tennessee and Florida.
iteach launches in West Virginia, Indiana, Arizona and Arkansas.
iteach continues to attract more and more career switchers around the country to pursue their dreams of becoming a teacher.
