Recruiting Washington Teachers (RWT) is a high school teacher academy program aimed at recruiting and supporting diverse future teachers as they explore and prepare for careers in education, especially in endorsement and geographic shortage areas. RWT uses a “Grow Your Own” approach, growing future teachers from within local communities, which helps to address teacher shortages across Washington State. RWT programs work to align the diversity of educators and students and eliminate the opportunity gap for students from underserved groups, with a specific focus on multicultural and multilingual students, and students of color.
