The Wyoming teacher shortage is growing to include nearly all subject areas. The Wyoming Teacher Certification Resource says, “Wyoming reports teacher shortages for the 2020-21 school year in many areas including special education, math, English as a second language (ESL), science, elementary education, gifted education, and more.” When certified teachers are not available to teach these classes, the positions are filled by underqualified substitutes.
In April 2021, Frontline Education surveyed 1,200 district leaders to discover that two out of three respondents reported having teacher shortages in their schools. This is a record high since launching the survey in 2015.
