A fact sheet prepared by New York State United Teachers’ Research and Educational Services predicts an impending shortage of qualified teachers in New York State.
The Sage Colleges’ Esteves School of Education will host an education night to discuss this impending teacher shortage, and the opportunities it creates for those interested in pursuing a career in education.
“Education Night and Panel Discussion: The State of Education in New York” will be held on Tues., Jan. 30, 2018, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in Bush Memorial Center at Russell Sage College, 65 1st Street, Troy, N.Y. 12180. The event is free and open to the public.
Education Night will include opportunities for current and prospective undergraduate and graduate students and people considering a career change to learn what skills and certifications education employers are looking for, and a chance for current education professionals to network with colleagues from schools throughout the Capital District.
Panelists include Angelina Maloney, Ed.D., superintendent, Brunswick Central Schools; Brian Bailey, Ed.D., superintendent, Ravena-Coyemans-Selkirk Schools; Mark Perry, principal, Harmony Hill School, Cohoes City Schools; Kirsten DeMento, director, Curriculum and Instruction, Watervliet City School District; and Cheri Vandenberg, school counselor, Menands School District.
