Registration fee: $50.00 for member; $75.00 for nonmember

New Beginning Teacher Assistance Online Course

MSTA's BTA course is asynchronous online learning. Asynchronous learning means participants engage with the course content at different times. The course is divided into modules. Each module might use online readings or uploaded media, online quizzes, discussion boards, and more.  

The Online BTA addresses the following Missouri Teacher Development System (MTDS) Competencies:

  • Builds Relationships & Culture
  • Creates & Manages a Learning Environment
  • Develops Research-Based Instruction
  • Engages Students in Content
  • Understands the Professional Expectations of the Profession

In addition to BTAP Course, the final component to complete the BTAP requirement for certification is taking part in ongoing learning. Participants can meet this ongoing learning component through book studies, online courses or by attending MSTA’s Virtual New Teachers Summit. From the following options, participants are required to do two ongoing learning opportunities.  

  • Participate in a MSTA Beyond the Book Club book study (offered monthly)
