What People Are Saying…

Libby, a high school teacher from Texas, talks with ABC News about how iteach gave her the chance to transition from a career in performing arts to achieving her dream of teaching dance.

“If I had decided to go back to a college for education, it would have taken me years to finish with multiple student loans and thousands of dollars. iteach was an affordable way to get into the classroom. I love being a teacher. If anyone has ever considered being a teacher, this is a great opportunity for them.” – Libby Claycomb
