UWA Project REACh
Seeking Non-Education Candidates With A Passion For Teaching
The University of West Alabama is launching Project REACh, a program ideal for those with a bachelor’s degree without teaching certification, but who are interested in improving children’s futures through education. Project REACh* is a teacher residency program that aims to improve the critical teacher shortage in high-need schools in Alabama. The program was developed to address challenges such as increasing teacher turnover, teaching outside of qualified content areas, and low student achievement in three Alabama counties. Qualifying teacher residents will receive a $45,000 stipend during the residency, which funds the cost of living in one of three school districts as they take part in an immersive learning experience.

- Early Childhood Education

- English Language Arts Education
- History Education
- Mathematics Education

Moore Minority Educator Scholarships
Celebrating its inaugural year, the newly formed Ms. Daisy Seale Moore Minority Educator’s Scholarship will award five $1,000 scholarships to successful applicants who identify as African American, Hispanic, Native American, or Asian-American Pacific Islanders. Students must enroll or be enrolled in a college education program and plan to teach in Baldwin County when they are certified.
Studies report a direct correlation between minority students remaining in school and performing better in class when there are minority teachers and administrators in the school system. In fact, the studies reflect having minority educators improves the experience for all students. There is a positive community effort underway in Baldwin County Public Schools to attract and retain qualified, dedicated minority educators. This is a cooperative approach by the Baldwin County Public School System Human Resources Department and the community group ACT-II (of Ecumenical Ministries Baldwin County) Minority Teacher Hiring Council. In line with this, the new college scholarships are designed to attract, recruit and retain qualified, dedicated minority educators to serve in Baldwin County Alabama public schools upon graduation from college. Scholarship awards will be based on winners of a 1,000-word (or less) essay contest describing why the applicant believes minority students, educators, families, schools and our society benefit from having qualified, dedicated minority educators serving in our public schools.
To ask questions or receive an application email email@example.com Entries are due by June 22. Scholarships will be given at 10 a.m. Awards Ceremony and Reception June 30 at The Brennity of Fairhope. Ms. Daisy Seale Moore lives in Fairhope. She taught school for over thirty years and during that time she taught Hispanic students in the summer months. She also taught at a minority school in Mobile County, before rejoining the Baldwin County School System as one of its first K-8 counselors.
