The Educator’s Academy provides continuing education opportunities to K-12 instructors to re-certify  Illinois teaching certification. Workshops are face-to-face, as well as online–taught by teachers for teachers.

The average salary full-time annual salary is $53,090. Employment of kindergarten and elementary school teachers is projected to grow 12 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Growth is expected due to projected increases in enrollment as well as declines in student–teacher ratios. However, employment growth will vary by region.

Among the topics covered in this course are: teaching study skills, classroom management, differentiated instruction, special education refresher, wisdom in the classroom, solving classroom discipline problems, Spanish in the classroom, and much more. Online opportunities are available with our education partner Education to Go at ed2go.com/morainevalley.
