Path 2 Teaching

Educator teaching students

Tapping the skills, experiences, diversity, and resources of those outside of the educational field is essential in preparing each Amarillo Independent School District (A.I.S.D.) student for success beyond high school. That’s why A.I.S.D. is also looking for educators with real-world experience.

If you already have a Bachelor’s Degree or are currently working on one, you can quickly become a fully certified teacher in A.I.S.D. through Path 2 Teaching. A.I.S.D. provides information on how to obtain a teaching certificate at our annual Path 2 Teaching event. Contact Laurie Ortega at 806-326-1490, or for more information.
