Oregon State's College of Education proudly partners with three school districts in the Portland metro region to provide students in the Master of Arts in Teaching program with unique, real-world teaching experience.

 

Beaverton School District

As part of one of Oregon’s most diverse cities with more than 90 languages spoken in area schools, the Beaverton School District seeks teachers who bring a rich diversity of cultures to their classrooms. Beaverton’s open, welcoming community to those of all national, ethnic and cultural backgrounds creates an ideal environment for working professionals looking to advance their career.

Frequently referred to as “Teach for Beaverton,” the program provides you the opportunity to learn from Oregon State faculty while co-teaching with experienced BSD senior teachers.

Learn while working in a classroom

You will need to commute to Beaverton twice weekly during the first year and regularly during the second year to work in a BSD classroom. Oregon State coursework continues during the second year, but with fewer courses required. In-person classes are held at the new OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square.

Earn while you learn

We understand it can be financially challenging to earn an additional degree. That’s why we’re offering opportunities for you to earn income as a part-time BSD substitute teacher while taking Oregon State courses online and in-person. There may be additional opportunities to offset expenses.

 

Hillsboro School District

This program is designed to provide a pathway for Hillsboro School District instructional support staff to become elementary dual language teachers. You will have the opportunity to learn from Oregon State faculty and be mentored by HSD master teachers.

Learn while working in a classroom

You will need to commute to Hillsboro at least twice weekly during the first year and regularly during the second year to work in an HSD classroom. Oregon State coursework continues during the second year but with fewer courses required. In-person classes are held at the new OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square.

Dual Language Program

The Hillsboro School District began its Spanish-English Dual Language Program (DLP) in 2002 to engage and support the city's increasingly diverse community. In the DLP, elementary students are exposed to the same curriculum as their peers while also having the opportunity to learn a second language. Cultures are explored while students work and learn together, preparing them for a successful future in our multicultural world.

Earn while you learn

This program is available for employed instructional support staff and new teachers in partner schools within the Hillsboro School District.

 

 

Portland Public Schools

Become a dual language fellow through a partnership that enables you to learn from OSU's College of Education faculty along with bilingual master teachers from Portland Public Schools.

Learn while working in a classroom

You will need to commute to Portland at least twice weekly during the first year and regularly during the second year to work in a PPS classroom. Oregon State coursework continues during the second year but with fewer courses required. In-person classes are held at the new OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square.

Dual language immersion

PPS serves more than 49,000 students in 78 schools. The district is dedicated to eliminating systemic racism and its impact on student learning by preparing bilingual teachers to teach in its dual language immersion programs.

If you are fluent in Spanish, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Japanese or Russian and want to impact the needs of historically underserved students, this program offers you the opportunity to make a difference in a dual language classroom.

Earn while you learn

You have the opportunity to earn income and benefits as a dual language fellow. Approximately two-thirds of PPS fellows take on a full-time teaching position, which includes benefits, in their first year. You also have the option to work as a substitute teacher and earn the regular daily sub rate.
