MARE Partners with TEACH Missouri

MARE is pleased to partner with TEACH Missouri to provide avenues to address teacher recruitment in Missouri.  Please read below for more information on how TEACH Missouri can help!

Looking for resources to support your recruitment of future teachers?


Our friends at TEACH Missouri (TeachMO.org) have free tools and resources to make applying to educator preparation programs—and becoming a classroom teacher—easier for the future teacher! When your prospective teacher candidates create a TeachMO account, they immediately gain access to:


  • Interactive application checklists to stay on track with applications.
  • $100 fee reimbursement towards application and testing expenses.
  • 1-on-1 expert advice for questions along the way.
  • How-to guides for eligibility, applications, testing and finances.
  • A chance to win a $1,000 scholarship toward tuition.

Check out the Non-Certified Personnel Toolkit and High School Student Toolkit to incorporate these resources into your recruitment system!



I want your members to know about the following:

  • TeachMO Outreach Toolkits for non-certified personnel and students. These toolkits feature communication resources that assist LEAs in connecting members of their talent pools with TeachMO resources that will support them on their routes to becoming certified teachers.
  • TeachMO Alternative Certification Guide. This resource includes an article and downloadable guide with step-by-step instructions to pursue alternative certification with a provisional certificate, plus a list of EPPs that offer alternative certification and answers to some frequently asked questions.
  • TeachMO Commit to Kids This Year Campaign. A campaign built around a new article and video that seeks to encourage prospects to find a way to get in the classroom this fall as a means to lift up their communities after these hard pandemic years.
  • Start of the Year Vacancies Toolkit (PDF Attached) from our friends at Substantial. They created this toolkit as a free tool to help district teams think about the best ways to leverage substitute teachers. This could be a great resource for your members as they face any vacancies at the start of this school year.
