The Right Time for Recruiting New Colleagues
Tiala, Sylvia; Harris, Kara
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v71 n1 p32-36 Sep 2011
Exciting times lie ahead for technology and engineering educators as the profession debates its role relative to national STEM initiatives, legislation is introduced to expand engineering/technology education into the K-12 curriculum, and a national assessment for technological literacy is developed. The time is right to recruit new technology education teachers. Encouraging individuals to enter the teaching field may be well-timed in spite of bleak news about teacher layoffs, budget cuts, and a struggling economy. The need for technology education teachers has existed for decades, and the trend continues. In this article, the authors describe the importance of encouraging students to become technology education teachers. (Contains 2 figures and 17 resources.)
