Why talk to a coach?
Get advice and info, based on where you’re starting and where you want to be. Talk to a coach 1-on-1 or join a group advising session, so you can take the next step in your journey with confidence.
TEACH Colorado coaches are licensed teachers. If you’re new to teaching, they can help you with questions like:
- How do I know if teaching is right for me?
- How do I get licensed to teach?
- How do I choose a teaching program?
- Anything else you want to know!
Plus, when you sign up with a coach, you’ll get access to every TEACH Colorado product and service — all completely free.
Not sure if a 1-on-1 call is right for you? Group info sessions are also a great way to learn about becoming a teacher.
Group sessions are held monthly and cover topics like:
- Steps to a teaching license and how to choose your subject area
- How to choose a teaching pathway and program
- How to get career and financial support from TEACH Colorado
To join a group session: Click the “Sign Up” button to open the group advising Eventbrite page. There, you can click “Select a date” and choose the session that works best with your schedule.

Coaching is available to anyone brand-new to teaching — without a teaching credential or experience as a lead teacher in any state — who is living in the U.S., or is a U.S. citizen living abroad. If you’re not eligible for coaching, you can learn more about becoming a CO teacher with the TEACH Colorado Licensure Guide or from the Colorado Department of Education.
