PORTLAND — A recent report shows that new Mainers often have a high level of education and work experience, but they face roadblocks to re-employment in the U.S., including certification requirements that are often hard to navigate.
That’s partly why the New Mainers Resource Center at Portland Adult Education has created a program to put foreign-trained teachers on a path toward achieving the prerequisites needed to teach in local classrooms.
Called the Education Academy, the program will start in January and run through mid-April. The hope, according to Sally Sutton, program coordinator at the resource center, is to get at least some participants ready to be employed by September 2019.
