Share Article

A MA mother, who is supporting her four children and sick husband, is awarded PrepForward’s teacher preparation scholarship to help her become certified as a special education teacher.

PrepForward, an industry leader in online teacher preparation courses, provides scholarships for their innovative self-paced courses for educators. Bonnie, a paraprofessional in a special needs classroom, has been awarded PrepForward’s teacher preparation scholarship to help her prepare for her teacher certification exams. Bonnie will receive free access to any of PrepForward’s math, reading, language arts, writing, or inclusion courses to help her gain the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in the classroom. Many prospective Massachusetts teachers are struggling to pass the difficult MTEL exams, especially the math subtest of the General Curriculum MTEL exam. Passing this MTEL test is the last hurdle for Bonnie to become eligible for her teaching license.

Her daughter’s autism fueled Bonnie’s passion and desire to help special needs children. After spending several years raising her four children, Bonnie found the courage to return to school and recently completed her Masters Degree in Special Education. She now must pass the MTEL exams to be eligible for licensure. With her husband sick with metastatic cancer, Bonnie is bringing in the only salary to support her large family. This scholarship will enable her to effectively prepare for licensure by mastering the core content necessary to pass her MTEL certification exams.

PrepForward established a scholarship program to ensure dedicated educators with financial needs could obtain proper preparation for the classroom. Scholarship applicants may be at any stage in their teaching career, including teacher candidates preparing for state licensing exams and current teachers who are seeking professional development.
