HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS COMMIT TO TEACHING PROFESSION

5/11/2022

In a ceremony similar to one held for student-athletes, student teachers in Richland School District Two recently signed certificates recognizing their commitment to making a difference in the lives of children. Richland Two proudly welcomed 23 new educators on Future Educators Signing Day earlier this month. 

Senior Chief Human Resources Officer, Shawn Williams says with the current teacher shortage, these new educators will be an asset to the district’s teaching staff. “Richland Two is doing everything possible to attract the best talent to our classrooms. This includes offering competitive salaries for teachers starting at $41,000 annually, benefits, and premier working conditions. We are fortunate to have 23 student-teachers sign certificates recognizing their commitment to the teaching profession,” said Williams.
