Special Education Teacher Recruitment Meeting Will Be Oct. 4 at the U of M

The BASE-TN initiative (Become a Special Educator in Tennessee) will hold an informational meeting at the University of Memphis on Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the University Center, Room 218.

Formed in an effort to recruit more special education teachers in the state, the BASE-TN program was funded by grants from the Tennessee Department of Education. The DOE awarded the grants to the U of M and seven other colleges and universities across Tennessee. Funds provide tuition for students who are pursuing a license to teach special education.

The program focuses on two categories of students – those who hold a bachelor's degree in an area other than special education and are considering a career change, and educational assistants with at least two years of college and who are currently working with disabled children.

Reservations for the meeting are necessary and must be made by Oct. 3. They can be made by calling 901-678-1740.

The deadline for spring 2006 BASE-TEN applications is Oct. 28.

For information on the BASE-TN program at the U of M, contact Carol Hunter at base-tn@memphis.edu or by phone at 901-678-1740.

Details about the program are available online at coe.memphis.edu/base-tn or at www.k12.tn.us/BASE-TN.
