Interested in “growing your” own teachers?
Districts can find motivated, well-qualified teacher candidates in their own communities by mobilizing local paraeducators, foreign-trained immigrants, career changers, and young people to enter the teaching profession. The resources below* will help you gather information to grow your own teachers, including curriculum, tools, templates, and research. Learn more about GYO efforts across Washington State.
*We are currently creating a report and toolkit coming out of the GYO infrastructure pilot grant and will update this page when we finalize those in Fall or Winter 2020. Please provide us your contact information, and we will email you when we publish the updates.
