ESD, Pacific University considering creation of distance teacher training program in Douglas County

Release Date: 

Considering a career change? Ever thought about teaching? We are working with Pacific University to begin a local teaching program in Douglas County. This program would be a hybrid of online and in class learning and could be done while participants work and live at home in Douglas County.

We are looking for at least 12 participants in order to get a commitment from Pacific University for a first cohort. If you are interested, please contact Human Resources Director Holly Hill as soon as possible. She can be reached at 541-957-4837 or

Please be advised that program details (dates, costs, specific location) are still dependent on knowing if our county has enough interest first. So if you're curious, we encourage you to reach out ASAP. We anticipate that the creation of a local teacher training program would mean lower costs, tuition reimbursements and/or scholarships for participants.

Teachers for nearly all ages and subjects, especially special education, math and science, are in high demand in Oregon and around the country. It is a field with lots of employment opportunities. Our intent with this program is a "grow your own" approach to the need for teachers here in Douglas County.
