In an effort to build excitement around the teaching profession and encourage students to pursue a career in education, Loganville, Monroe Area and Walnut Grove High Schools participated in Georgia’s Future Educators Signing Day, a statewide initiative sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education.
"This year, WCSD hosted its largest future educator signing day with 43 graduating seniors making the decision to pursue a career in education," said Director of 6-12 Curriculum and CTAE Celeste Cannon. "We are proud of the students who have made a commitment to join our profession and look forward to welcoming them as colleagues in the future."
Georgia Future Educators Signing Day, held each year during Teacher Appreciation Week, is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education’s Division of Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education in partnership with the Georgia Early Childhood Education Foundation (GECEF) and Georgia’s colleges and universities.
“Students cannot succeed without great teachers in the classroom,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “We know, however, that teacher recruitment and retention is a serious issue in our state, as it is nationwide. Part of our comprehensive approach to addressing teacher recruitment and retention is elevating the teaching profession. Future Educators Signing Day allows us to celebrate those students who answer the incredibly important calling of becoming an educator.”
