Utah has a teacher shortage...wow that is surprise. Weber State University, Ogden School District, Weber School District and Davis School District are doing something to help. It is called Teachers of Tomorrow and Future Educators Association. Davis, Weber and soon Ogden will offer Ed 1010, Intro to Education, as a concurrent enrollment class of students interested in being teachers. Joan Iverson, a master teacher, is leading the Weber class at West Haven Elementary. I visited her class and saw 16 fantastic students and future educators. Joan does a great job at Bonneville High where she teaches in the Special Education Dept. . Suzy Davis at Ogden High has been an amazing advisor to our Future Educators and works closely with Stephanie Heath, WSU College of Ed recruiter to organize activities and programs for the future teachers. Troy Wakely, a counselor at Ben Lomond, is helping with the BLHS FEA chapter.We look forward to these programs growing and recruiting more of our students into the career we love so much.
