7/28 Those who can: Teach!

Posted by novoscene on July 28, 2008

Oakland needs more good teachers. With a high school drop out rate hovering at around 37%, Oakland needs teachers who give a damn. Who can roll up their sleeves and jump into a job that’s admittedly not very glamorous, not very financially rewarding and frankly, is tough as hell. But it’s undoubtedly one of the most direct and necessary things that any one who cares about Oakland’s future can do.

And don’t let a lack of teaching credentials keep you from making the leap. Oakland has several programs that train new teachers and give them some of the tools they’ll need to make a difference in the classroom. The office of Da Dellums, the Effective Teachers for Oakland Task Force and the Oakland Education Association are sponsoring an info session tonight at Frank Ogawa Plaza. You can meet first year teachers and interns currently enrolled in the teaching program, meet OUSD’s new Interim Superintendent, Roberta Mayor and find out how to start the process so you’ll be ready for next school year. Stop by tonight for more info.

Do it for the kids. The town needs you.-kwan
