The GoTeachKY campaign has partnered with 12 teacher ambassadors across the state to help promote the teaching profession. Ambassadors were selected from a pool of applicants who answered the call for teachers interested in supporting this new statewide initiative.
These ambassadors have three goals:
- Communicate with and inspire students in high school and college to consider teaching as a career.
- Communicate with potential and current teachers to positively capture the rewards and opportunities associated with a career in teaching.
- Support and promote the central focus areas, programs, and organizations of GoTeachKY, such as Educators Rising and the Teaching and Learning Career Pathway.
Each ambassador has a unique story that brought them into the teaching profession. These stories will be featured in GoTeachKY’s social media campaign as real-life examples of the different pathways available to future educators. Ambassadors will also represent GoTeachKY at career fairs and other speaking engagements. They will serve through June.
