The UGA New Teacher Institute (PACTE-NTI) program has existed in its current form since 2001. More than 500 teachers have graduated from the program since 2001. Many of these teachers have been named local, state, and national Teacher of the Year, and a substantial percentage of graduates now serve as department heads, assistant principals, and principals.
Note: If you plan to teach in marketing, business, technical and family and consumer sciences areas, you must have an undergraduate degree.
