Did you know that teachers in the United States rate their lives better than all occupation groups, trailing only physicians?*

In this webinar participants will dig into some rather surprising data about the teaching profession. We will also share strategies and resources for sharing the facts about the profession so that students will have accurate information about their career prospects. Get the Facts Out is excited to work with institutions (including Brigham Young University) on their teacher recruitment efforts and is providing customized resources including student presentations, posters, brochures, program flyer templates, and presentations for faculty and staff who advise students.

In addition, strategies and experiences (from BYU) will be shared that include how to talk to students about the profession, a listing of venues for reaching students, and recommendations for sharing the facts in your institution All materials are professional quality, research-based, and have been extensively user-tested. Get the Facts Out is a partnership between the American Physical Society, American Chemical Society, the American Mathematics Teacher Educators, and the American Association of Physics Teachers led by the Colorado School of Mines. NSF #1821710 & 1821462.
