Are Arizona teaching jobs going unfilled? That is the question asked by the press in Arizona since the latest real data they could find was in 2003. It is one of the oddities about the teacher shortage – most states have no good data on hiring and open teaching positions and Arizona is no different.
We just got started with Arizona Teachers of Tomorrow last week and are proud to be part of the solution. We don’t have any hard data but in just two weeks we have been asked by numerous districts and charter school groups to fill open positions for next year.
So, like many things in education, we “know” there are open Arizona teaching jobs right now that need a great teachers. We just have no data to back it up.
We do know our great HR reps in the school districts -the sharpest ones – are already getting in touch with us to hire our teachers for Arizona schools
