The opportunity to become a teacher is now within the
reach of more working adults because of Professional
Immersion programs offered by Johns Hopkins and the
Montgomery County Public Schools. These two-year master's
degree programs are designed to fill critical areas of
need in schools by bringing second-career adults into the
field of education.
The programs are open to individuals who have at
least a four-year undergraduate degree and meet Johns
Hopkins entrance requirements. All tuition, books and fees
are paid for by Montgomery County Public Schools after the
first six credits of the program, and candidates are
eligible for a stipend in the teaching fellow portion.
Candidates agree to teach in Montgomery County for three
years after completing the program.
Participants take classes at JHU's
County Campus and serve as teaching interns and
fellows in the Montgomery County schools.
An information session will be held from 4:30 to 6
p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 27, at the Montgomery County
Campus. Sessions start on the half hour. For more
