Teachers, High-Need Fields | 03.27.09
If you read the fine print on the TEACH Grant, which is a grant providing up to $4,000 per year in grant assistance to students who are completing or plan to complete course work needed to begin a career in teaching, you will notice that in exchange for the grant, a student must sign an agreement to serve as a full-time teacher at certain low-income schools within certain high-need fields for at least four academic years within eight years of completing their course of study. Below is a list of high-need fields.
- Foreign language
- Bilingual education and English language acquisition
- Special education
- Reading specialist
- Other high-need fields must be listed in the Department of Education’s Nationwide Listing of Teacher Shortage Areas.
