The Florida Education Association states, "Florida has a serious and growing teacher shortage. Districts had more than 4,000 advertised vacancies for classroom teachers in August 2018, up from 3,000 in 2017 and 2,400 in 2016. As of January 2020 —midway through the school year — more than 2,440 teaching positions remained unfilled — a 10% increase from January 2019." Critical subject areas include Math, Science, English and Reading.
Florida offers some of the lowest teacher salaries in the nation, so teacher retention is poor. This leaves thousands of open teaching jobs every year. "Florida schools have 4,776 total teacher vacancies to begin the year," reports the Florida Department of Education.
Teacher Shortage reports claim, "Based on news and state reports, we estimate that there are at least 55,000 vacant teacher positions in the United States."
“I know I would have never thought in my 20 years of experience that we would be online and offer so many options and reach so many children.”
