Educator Pathways - Quick Announcement

Seeking Educators to Participate in Recruiting Washington Teachers Pilot!


The Educator Pathways team occasionally sends out information between newsletters that is deemed pressing enough to warrant messaging before next month’s bulletin. In this instance, we want you to be aware of a time-sensitive opportunity for current teachers, especially those interested in fostering the next generation of Washington’s teachers! 

PESB has been working with the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP) to develop professional development tools to support the Recruiting Washington Teachers (RWT) program. RWT is made up of curriculum, resources, and pilot projects for high school teaching academies—these academies allow high school students to explore a future career as an educator, with a foundation in growing our own culturally responsive, diverse future educators. More information on the program can be found here:

New Professional Development Opportunity 

CSTP and PESB are excited to announce an opportunity for educators to pilot professional development online modules for the Recruiting Washington Teachers Teaching Academy curriculum. CSTP has been working with teams of teachers to create online modules that provide professional development to teachers planning on teaching the Recruiting Washington Teachers curriculum (available from the PESB website:

Educators from all over the state and from a variety of curriculum areas and levels are eligible and needed. Educators will learn more about the program and provide feedback on the online professional development modules for the Recruiting WA Teachers Program of WA State. Educators will pilot the new modules in September and October of 2017.

Deadline: We encourage you to sign up immediately! CSTP seeks 50 educators to pilot the online modules that have been created. The pilot will close October 31st, 2017, so there is limited time to participate. Educators will pilot the new modules through months of Sept. and Oct. 2017.
