I Predict a Teacher Shortage
My colleagues and I are predicting a teacher shortage. I don't know what it's like in your area, but here north of Seattle, we often have substitute jobs that go unfilled. At our school a maternity leave has been filled with someone without the correct endorsement.
Everywhere I went over spring break, I saw help wanted signs. More than one employer has told me recently that they are having trouble filling jobs. As the stress of teaching continues and teachers see other options, I predict we will have more than just substitute jobs going unfilled.
What's it like where you live and work?
