What is the Teach Gwinnett Program?

  • Participants in the Teach Gwinnett program are full-time GCPS teachers, certified by the state of Georgia and earning a teacher salary at the provisional rate.

    The Teach Gwinnett Program is an alternative preparation program for professionals looking to join Gwinnett County’s education system. Instead of a traditional, four year path to certification, the Teach Gwinnett program can prepare you for certification in 1-2 years, based on the state and local requirements. This teacher education program is designed to help you.
