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?


  1. There is a shortage here also and I want to continue but my health problems won't let me anymore.

    1. I'm sorry to hear that. What part of Louisiana are you from?
