Congratulations to the members of the first Greenville Alternative Teacher Education (GATE) cohort who have successfully completed the first year and are now moving into Year Two. @PEPGreenville
GATE is an exciting, innovative, new pathway to a career in teaching. The first district-based, job-embedded alternative certification program in South Carolina is designed to increase the number of exceptional math and science teachers in Greenville County middle level and secondary schools. In partnership with Public Education Partners (PEP), GATE provides rigorous preparation in best educational practices to selected individuals who have a strong commitment to teach and a bachelor’s degree with a major or an emphasis in math or science. Similar to a medical residency model, the program fully integrates content, best teaching practices and professional knowledge within a supportive, authentic school teaching experience.
