Fort Worth, Texas is in desperate need of bilingual teachers. The city has a huge  Spanish-speaking community .  Here’s a note I got from Carmen Orozoco via  My hope is that some of you reporters will do a story on this need. It’s a great people story.

For those of you who are not journalists, just spread the word to your friends who are bilingual professionals and may want to become teachers.

Hi Rebecca,

The number one factor that determines whether or not a student will succeed is the person standing at the front of the classroom every day. My name is Carmen Orozco and I work with the Fort Worth Teaching Fellows program (FWTF). FWTF is an initiative of the Fort Worth Independent School District to bring in top talent from various professional fields and transform students’ lives through teaching.

There is a shortage of bilingual teachers in FWISD, so we need your help. It appears from your profile that you are bilingual, and I was impressed with your background and record of achievement. As a high-quality professional, you may have contacts in your network that might be interested in having a conversation with us in learning more about becoming a bilingual teacher. Many strong applications come directly from referrals – colleagues, family, and friends spreading the word about Fort Worth Teaching Fellows. Who in your professional network might be interested in becoming an elementary bilingual teacher?

Our next application deadline is April 29, although we’re planning to extend for bilingual candidates. Could you take a few minutes to support Fort Worth Teaching Fellows and help us deliver on the promise of a quality education for all children? Please reply with any names of people we should contact or let me know if you’d rather hop on the phone to chat. Or perhaps, you might be interested….

Let me know at your earliest convenience.

Warm Regards,

Carmen Orozco
