“I have been employed as a full time teacher and I have you to thank. I never thought this would be possible and it is only because of your opportunity. Thanks again.” – Christine Lake, Biology/General Science/Mathematics/English Language Arts/Elementary Education

“One thing I can say now (looking back) is that my insecurities as an Alternate Route teacher were unfounded. The program, test preparation, and support that I received put me on a competency level with teachers from university certification programs. With motivation and dedication to my new career, I was able to hold my own with some of the best teachers in the state. Thanks again for helping to make my dream of being a teacher the very life I live now.” – Tracey Robertson, English Language Arts

“This affordable and convenient alternative option was a perfect complement to my busy work schedule. The American Board program allowed me to work full-time and pursue becoming a teacher.” – Clark Sarge, Mathematics

“Going through the regular certification channels, it would’ve taken me three or four extra years. This let me get into the classroom a lot sooner.” – Walter Lutes, Mathematics

“I found ABCTE and I talked to someone who had gotten her certification this way. I really felt like, for me, it was the best opportunity out there because I could work at my own pace and I could keep working [my current job].” – Heather Miller, English Language Arts

“The wonderful thing about ABCTE is the flexibility. You just log onto the site…you’re able to get all the information that you need, all the course work. And you have the customer service reps at your fingertips and they’re always really good at getting back to you and getting you through the program.” – Bridgette Blake, English Language Arts

“With ABCTE, you do it when you have time, at home on your computer. I could do it while the baby was sleeping and that was great. I didn’t have to lose all my family time.” – Heather Herd, Mathematics

“My worst day at school is still better than my best day in the office.” – Lisa Mayo, English Language Arts
