Participant must be enrolled in the Northeast Georgia RESA GaTapp Program to participate in the Essentials of Effective Teaching.
  • The Georgia Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy (GaTAPP) is a job-embedded, classroom-based program with multiple paths for Candidates to complete teacher preparation and earn a clear, renewable certificate. This is not intended to replace regular college teacher education programs, but is tailored for individuals who meet the program requirements to be a perspective teacher in early childhood, middle-grades, secondary, special education, P-12 education or technical/career education. GaTAPP seeks to equip Candidates with the skills to ensure a reasonable expectation of initial success in their classroom, and to put in place a supervised internship/induction program which will help them move toward subsequent mastery of teaching.
