Virginia had more than 1,000 unfilled teaching positions in October 2017, according to former Virginia State Department of Education Superintendent of Public Instruction Steven R. Staples.
In response to that shortage, Marymount University is expanding its education programs for those interested in seeking a pathway to the teaching profession. Its mission is central to meeting the needs of the community while fulfilling the dreams of newcomers and career-switchers who want to make a positive difference in the lives of children.
Learn what Marymount can offer future teachers at a free information session at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 12 in Rowley Hall, G206, Marymount University, 2807 N. Glebe Road.
