Virginia had more than 1,000 unfilled teaching positions in October 2017, according to former Virginia Department of Education Superintendent of Public Instruction, Steven R. Staples.
In 2018, the Commonwealth was still struggling with over 850 vacancies. Providing a diverse workforce in our schools is a necessity to support all learners. We can begin by being part of the solution by participating and engaging with practicing teachers about how we can all support the charge for a more diverse educational workforce.
Join us for a Panel on Diversity in the K-12 Teaching Workforce followed by a reception where you can mingle with the panelists, faculty and enrollment coordinators to learn more about M.Ed programs and gaining licensure at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 11 at Marymount’s Ballston campus, 1000 N. Glebe Road, Arlington, Virginia in the auditorium on the first floor. Refreshments will be provided.
In response to this shortage, Marymount University is expanding its education programs for those interested in seeking a pathway to the teaching profession. Our mission is central to meeting the needs of the community while fulfilling the dreams of newcomers and career-switchers that want to make a positive difference in the lives of children.
After our panel, feel free to talk with current MU and alumni about our teacher education programs. We will also be providing a short information session with an admissions team member to answer questions about applying to Marymount’s M.Ed programs after the panel discussion.
Marymount’s Education programs include:
- A four-year bachelor’s degree with VA teaching licensure
- A fast-track, full-time, one-year Professional Development Master’s program leading to licensure
- A part-time, self-paced Master’s program, leading to licensure
- A weekend cohort Master’s program leading to licensure in 18 months
- Certificate programs (15 credits) in Special Education, English as a Second Language and/or STEM that provides the foundation to teach on a provisional license
For more information about these programs, please join us on April 11 at 6 p.m. Parking at Marymount’s Ballston Center is free for guests at this event.
If you are unable to attend and would like information about our various programs leading to licensure, please contact Graduate Enrollment Services at 703-284-5901 or [email protected].
