My friend, Kathy Vining DeLone, asked me to pass along this important bit of information from the State Education Department. Note that I am doing an interview Friday morning concerning this. It's important.
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. This Saturday, 9am-2pm at the Embassy Suites in LIttle Rock.
