Bilingual teaching Recruitment

We are in the process of advertising two opportunities for anti-biased and anti-racist, linguistically and/or culturally diverse Washington County community members to learn more about becoming an educator. We are working with our partners from Beaverton SD, Forest Grove SD, Hillsboro SD, Northwest Regional ESD, Portland Community College, Tigard-Tualatin SD, and Sherwood SD for these Washington County Future Teachers Pathway information sessions on Feb 9 and 10.

Flyer in English and Spanish with more information here:

In collaboration with our partners, we will be providing advisors to help attendees with each step along their educational journey: GED, English language acquisition, associate’s degree, foreign transcript evaluation, employment as a non-licensed staff member, Bachelors, and Masters. We aim for each attendee to leave the meeting with a clear pathway to teacher licensure.

Thank you –
