Be a Mentor

22 Get Involved 2.6 copyExperienced teachers have a wealth of information to impart to our students whether they are relatively new to the rewarding career of teaching or whether they are veteran teachers. TSTT invites qualified teachers in our partnering school districts who enjoy mentoring future educators to contact the TSTT regional program management team.


We would love to have our students shadow you and we believe that if you become actively engaged in coaching our students, we want to show our appreciation for your time with a stipend to serve as one of our teacher mentors. We encourage our school superintendents to participate in mock interviews of our college juniors and seniors, to see first- hand how well prepared graduates will be before they graduate.


TSTT has an annual technology conference and two career development workshops for our college and high school students. We invite our partnering colleges to send their representatives and college professors to visit our students, share information about their schools of education, or serve as guest speakers.


Be a Volunteer

The TSTT Teacher Preparation Program is based on an 8-year training syllabus beginning in 9th grade and continuing through the senior year of college TSTT students receive grade appropriate instruction to successfully build their awareness and confidence through observation and independent practice of the skills required for teacher certification.

The 8-year TSTT career development model emphasizes both personal and professional development from study skills, college preparation, and money management to content literacy, curriculum design strategies, classroom design, management, and media and technology literacy in the 21st century classrooms.


Be a Donor

TSTT's corporate donors and foundation supporters have an opportunity to engage with our program participants on a personal level. Our sponsors can participate when appropriate in TSTT career development workshops and our annual technology conference to demonstrate how their real world experiences apply to and are impacted by a high level of teacher quality. TSTT college students often report being better prepared than their peers when they enter college.
