For some teachers, COVID-19 may be the final straw for them not coming back to the classroom. They may have underlying health issues or may live with family members who have COVID. Going back to the classroom right now for teachers that have these factors may not be an option or may be too risky.
The Golden Apple program is helping accelerate future teachers and get them roles in the classroom to help fill some of those shortages. President of Golden Apple, Alan Mather says that this program is important now more than ever.
Mather said that even through Golden Apple, they’ve had to make adjustments due to COVID.
Mather says that he has many goals for the Golden Apple program moving forward.
