Partner with a recent Lewis & Clark teacher education (MAT) graduate to support K-12 education in Fall 2020
July 29, 2020
Amidst a pandemic-fueled job shortage for teachers, and as local school districts are announcing comprehensive distance learning for fall 2020, Lewis & Clark’s recent MAT graduates are turning to a different style of teaching in order to find opportunities to serve children in the coming year: in-home tutoring.
“Families began reaching out to our department in July, asking if we knew of recent graduates who might be available for in-home teaching opportunities,” says Kimberly Campbell, teacher education department chair and professor. “We were already well aware of the difficulties some of our recent grads were having finding classroom positions for the fall, and these in-home opportunities enable them to secure meaningful employment during the pandemic when so far the usual opportunities for first year teachers are scarce.”
Any interested family can use this form to submit a position description to be posted on the In-Home Teaching Opportunities page, hosted on the graduate school’s website. The link is being distributed to MAT alumni who are then able to review the postings, determine best fit, and contact the family accordingly.
