Teachers Still in Short Supply Locally

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and the Keweenaw still finds itself woefully short of people in that profession…

Between the retirements and COVID, we’re facing an educator shortage, just like most of the work force, across our county and America.

That’s Copper Country Intermediate School District Superintendent James Rautiola, who, despite the challenges educators face today, encourages young people to enter the field…

If you like serving kids, there’s no better profession. It doesn’t feel like a job.

There are also opportunities for those looking to make a mid-life career change…

Absolutely. And actually, in the special education world, there are programs out there right now where you can get part of your college paid for.

If you think you would make a good teacher, contact the CCISD to learn more about the profession. Substitute teachers are also badly needed, and you do not need to have a teaching degree to qualify. Again, contact the CCISD if you’re interested.
