Hi John, yes, this is a major challenge for a lot of people I think. I can't say I have discovered some secrete solution but what I can say is instead of just thinking about recruiting teachers, think a lot about retaining the teachers you already have! This may or may not be a challenge for you as your retention may already be great but since it is so difficult to find new teachers, retention should be a priority. We have increased our focus on teacher recognition programs, and when we do have new teachers, we heavily prioritize professional development. We also started a mentorship program for new teachers pairing them with experienced teachers. Mentors simply make themselves available for tips/advice but it makes a big difference. I would love to hear what others do to address this challenge - thanks for raising the issue.
