Grow Our Own


Our project will focus on identifying students who are interested in teaching as a profession and expose students to the possibilities of teaching in an attempt to inspire students to consider teaching. The project will focus on developing and "growing our own" pipeline of teachers within our own district.


With aims:

  • to identify and adequately develop those high school students interested in the teaching as career
  • to establish partnerships with teacher programs at local colleges/universities
  • to provide opportunities for students through internships, teacher aide, and teaching assistant jobs as they work towards their degree
  • to diversify our staff through intentional efforts
  • to invest in, grow, and develop our own
