Did you ever think about becoming a school teacher? Do you have professional experience that you believe would make you an outstanding educator? Did you know that charter schools in Colorado receive a waiver from the educator licensing requirements and frequently hire individuals who have work experience in their field of study, but who may not be traditionally trained as a teacher? Our K-12 students in Colorado need diverse teachers, educators, and leaders standing at the head of their classrooms and schools. This includes diversity in race, ethnicity, age, gender, socioeconomic, geographic, sexual orientation, and academic/professional backgrounds.
