This week on eTown: José González / Mandolin Orange; ECHIEVEMENT AWARD: Ruth Libby  
 

In this back-by-popular-demand airing, eTown hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome Swedish indie folk artist José González and his band for a first visit to eTown. Also with us is North Carolina-based musical duo Mandolin Orange. It’s a musical combination like no other this week, plus a great eChievement Award story about a woman who is keeping office supplies out of landfills and getting them into the hands of teachers. Be sure to tune in or podcast!

A New Approach to Recruiting Teachers

Mar 1, 2017

To meet the persistent shortage of teachers locally, a new program is recruiting and training would-be educators who are already here, but doing something else right now.

One of the re-entry members in the current cohort is Amanda Park, who already has teaching experience, but decided to change course after moving to California last year.

Derek DiBenedetti has long enjoyed being a high school baseball coach. Now he’s joined the teacher internship program in order to be on campus even more of the time.
