Non-Profit Recruiting and Certifying Arizona Teachers

We here at the Arizona Farm Bureau and Fill Your Plate understand the importance of education for Arizona’s children, which is why we offer our Agriculture in the Classroom program.

As advocates of education we felt it important to help promote a cause that has been recently brought to our attention.

Currently, Arizona is experiencing a shortage of qualified teachers. A non-profit organization, The American Board, is dedicated to addressing teacher shortages both in Arizona and across the country. The American Board is an education 501(c)3 non-profit that offers an Arizona Department of Education-sanctioned route to teacher certification. You are pre-qualified for the program simply by having a bachelor’s degree, and can be teaching in the classroom within the year.

This month, The American Board is hosting free live information sessions at the following locations:
