Galloway Township, NJThe Richard Stockton College of New Jersey will host a special free Information Workshop in the Townsend Residential Life Center on Wednesday, October 26, at 6:30 p.m. for individuals interested in entering the teaching profession. 


Nancy Fiedler, Stockton’s Assistant Director of Teacher Education, will address the requirements needed to become a certified teacher in New Jersey.


“Those who are interested in entering the teaching profession out of college are welcome; but this is also an excellent opportunity for people who might want to look into the possibility of changing careers,” Fiedler said.


The workshop is free and open to the public.  Those attending should bring copies of all college transcripts which will be evaluated for certification requirements.  Transcripts will be returned by mail within a week – ten days.


The workshop is limited to the first 65 people who register.  For more information or to register, please call 609-652-4688.
