SAN JOSE, CA– This Saturday, March 25, the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) will host a Teacher Recruitment Fair. The event is designed for fully credentialed teachers to meet with recruiters from the SCCOE, local school districts, and charter schools throughout the county who are hiring for the upcoming school year.
As part of an ongoing initiative to boost qualified teaching candidates in the county, the SCCOE has released the ninth volume in the second Public Service Announcement (PSA) series, 'Why I Teach.'
"I, for one, really appreciate being a product of good public schools," says Thi Le-Nguyen, a teacher of the year from Jeanne R. Meadows Elementary School in the Franklin-McKinley School District. "It gave me a lot of opportunities and options in my life, and I want the same for my students. I think all children deserve equitable education."
In these PSAs, teachers from across the county explain why teaching in K-12 education is a rewarding career. These two-minute videos feature the county's district teachers of the year, who were honored during the 2016 Teacher Recognition Celebration hosted by the SCCOE last fall.
The new PSA also features Gail Ballenger, a teacher at Louise Van Meter Elementary School in the Los Gatos Union School District, and Beth Harke from Milpitas High School in the Milpitas Unified School District.
For more information about the PSA series, the Teacher Recruitment Fair, or upcoming events, please visit the SCCOE website.
