There is a critical teaching shortage in the United States and as a result school districts are finding it difficult to fill positions, especially in the areas of science, math, foreign languages, and special education. 

The St. Joseph School District is looking to solve this problem by starting a “Grow Your Own” program that will recruit, develop, and retain teachers already in the community. 

The program targets current high school students, college students majoring in education and employees who may have an interest in teaching.
