WESD to Host Teacher Interview Fair in January

The Washington Elementary School District (WESD) is hiring elementary, middle school and special education teachers for the 2022-2023 school year. The WESD will be hosting an in-person interview fair on Wednesday, January 19 from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the WESD Administrative Center (4650 W. Sweetwater Ave.), and a virtual interview fair January 18-20 from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.  Interviews are open to currently certified teachers, student teachers and those with a bachelor’s degree in any area interested in becoming teachers. 

For those with a bachelor’s degree, the WESD provides paid teacher training through the WESD BRIDGE program, a two-year ADE-approved teacher certification program. This program eliminates the time and financial barriers typically associated with a career change. 

Additionally, WESD offers many other great benefits including paid time off and employer-matched contributions to Arizona State Retirement.  All teachers enjoy weekly professional development and the opportunity to be mentored by experienced staff. WESD offers numerous opportunities for advancement including support for  those looking to take their career to the next level through National Board Certification and training for those interested in becoming school administrators.
