The project includes eight Education Career Counselors who provide direct support to individuals interested in becoming educators. Career Counselors act as credential experts, subject matter experts, and resource specialists for individuals seeking careers in PK-12 education. These staff members’ prior extensive background and experience greatly increase their ability to provide guidance from multiple perspectives, as well as to provide accurate, relevant information for aspiring educators and educators looking to grow in their careers. Career Counselors are available via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and questions generally receive a response in 1-2 business days.
The Education Career Counselors have helped develop new resources and webpages that are now available on the Commission’s website via the "Roadmap to Teaching” link on the homepage. These new webpages provide support for individuals interested in a career in education and compliment the work of Education Career Counselors.
