Learn to Teach
Beverly Williams, Assistant Commissioner in the Arkansas Department of Education, was on this morning talking about Saturday's teacher recruitment event at the Embassy Suites in West Little Rock. You can hear it in the WAI FREE "on demand" archives.
The Arkansas Department of Education is sponsoring a Teacher Recruitment event this Saturday. Education Week has ranked our state 4th in the nation in Improving Teacher Quality and our districts are always looking for high quality individuals to fill their teaching vacancies, especially in the areas of math, science, special education and foreign languages. The event is free and open to the public. We want to encourage those considering a career in education to attend and visit with personnel from education preparation programs - colleges, universities, MAT programs and Non-Traditional Licensure. Also, licensed teachers can find out about adding an area of licensure, earning an advanced degree or becoming a National Board Certified Teacher.
