In order to place highly qualified teachers in needed subject areas, McMurry University is now accepting applications for its FasTrack to Teaching program.

       The FasTrack is a post-baccalaureate teacher preparation program designed for adults who have four year university degrees and wish to change careers and become teachers. Courses are offered face to face, during the day or evening, and online. Coursework begins May 11 and can be completed either during the summer or the fall and spring semesters.

      Teaching certificates will be available in the following areas:  All-Level Certifications in Art, Music and Physical Education; Early Childhood through Sixth Grade (English and a Second Language Endorsement Possible; EC-6 requires more coursework than just the FasTrack courses); Grades 4-8 Certifications in English Language Arts and Reading, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies; the Grades 8-12 Certifications in Business Basics, Computer Science, Chemistry, English Language Arts and Reading, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Social Studies, Speech Communication, Technology Applications, and Theatre Arts.

      The program has a number of prerequisites including a 2.75 GPA, passing a content test, and a meningitis shot within the past 5 years if the applicant is under the age of 30.  Applicants will need to present a transcript for evaluation.  Once coursework is completed, students will be eligible for a teaching internship or for student teaching.

     For more information or to schedule a meeting, call the McMurry School of Education office at 325-793-4890.  Applicants may also contact the FasTrack director, Dr. Gae Lynn McInroe at or Mr. Mike Thomesen at
