The WESD is hiring teachers for current vacancies and offering contracts for the 2023-2024 school year! Join us for our Teacher Interview Fair on Monday, December 5, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the WESD Administrative Center, located at 4650 W. Sweetwater Ave., Glendale, AZ 85304. In-person and virtual interviews will be available. Interviews are open to currently certified teachers, student teachers, soon-to-be graduates 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.
The WESD offers many other great benefits including competitive salaries, paid time off, loan forgiveness and employer-matched contributions to Arizona State Retirement. All teachers enjoy weekly professional development and the opportunity for mentoring from experienced staff. Additionally, the WESD offers several 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.
