PrepForward, Strengthening Teacher Foundations


I can check off becoming a teacher from my bucket list.

PrepForward, an industry leader in online teacher preparation, established a scholarship program to ensure dedicated educators with financial needs could obtain proper training. Bob Corbin, a 61-year-old grandfather, has been awarded a PrepForward scholarship to help him prepare for his teacher certification exams. Mr. Corbin will receive free access to any of PrepForward’s self-paced math, reading, language arts, writing, or inclusion courses to help him gain the skills and confidence necessary to succeed on the MTEL exams and in the classroom.

Mr. Corbin, a Vietnam veteran who served in the Marines from 1970-1979, is seeking a career change. He started with substitute teaching and is now enrolling in the Elementary Education program at Worcester State University. He has always placed a high value on education, including being the only one of his large family of 8 siblings to graduate from college. With 9 grandkids, he finds it important to give back to his community and fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher. With MTEL test prep, he says he “can check off becoming a teacher from my bucket list.”

PrepForward established a scholarship program in response to tougher certification standards and teacher evaluations that have been approved by several state legislatures. Hopeful educators are now facing increasing challenges as they start out their K-12 teaching career. In particular, many prospective Massachusetts educators are struggling to pass the difficult MTEL tests that are required for their teaching license. Scholarship applicants may be at any stage in their teaching career, including candidates preparing for certification or existing teachers seeking professional development.
