Teach Portland: Educator Diversity Initiative

Portland Public Schools and USM are partnering to offer a free class this summer to introduce potential educators to working in Portland schools. This is part of the city’s efforts to make sure that, as the population of the Portland changes, its teachers change too.

The 2018 summer program includes a classroom internship 4 mornings per week (Monday-

Thursday) for 4 hours, and an optional professional development opportunity on Friday

mornings (college coursework or a skill-based workshop). A stipend of $700 will be provided to all participants in the classroom internship who are eligible to be paid and who meet attendance criteria. Tentative dates for the program are July 9-Aug 3. Participants will be asked to complete a language assessment as part of the program registration process.

Application of Interest Deadline is May 18, 2018; all the details are in the attached flyer, including how to apply and the application. To get a flyer, please click on Teach Portland Interest Application.042018
