The West Virginia Department of Education strives to attract individuals from all walks of life who are intelligent, creative, skilled, responsible and compassionate with a desire to begin educational career paths. These individuals complete state-approved educator preparation programs to become a part of our school districts. In West Virginia, teachers are provided opportunities for professional growth from the time they are inducted until they become experts of their profession. Our educators are making a difference in their communities every day by nurturing and shaping the minds of tomorrow and our schools are working to ensure that all students experience successes, think critically and recognize the value of life-long learning.
