West GA RESA
GA Academy for Preparation & Pedagogy Program
The Georgia Teacher
Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy (GaTAPP) is a classroom-based teacher
preparation option for individuals who have the basic qualifications to teach
early childhood, middle-grades, secondary or P-12 education but have not
completed a teacher preparation program. The program is not intended to replace
regular college teacher education programs. It is, instead, an alternative
option for individuals who hold a bachelor's degree or higher from an
accredited institute, but who did not complete teacher education preparation
requirements as part of their degree programs.
Georgia TAPP seeks
to equip teacher-candidates with the skills to ensure a reasonable expectation
of initial success in their classrooms, and to put in place a supervised
internship/induction program that will help them move toward subsequent mastery
of teaching. Please note that we serve only candidates that have
secured a full-time teaching position in one of our participating member
systems. Those systems are Carrollton City, Carroll County, Coweta
County, Harris County, Heard County, Meriwether County and Troup County.
