Governor Markell: "Our students deserve great teachers"

Governor Markell says identifying top educators is the key to strengthening Delaware schools.

"This week, I visited with 200 education students at the University of Delaware to discuss how we can help them be at their best in the classroom. Our education students need to know that while we've raised the standard to qualify to be a teacher in Delaware, we'll ensure they have the resources and opportunities they need to be successful," says Markell.

In his weekly address, Markell says in an effort to attract and retain the best teachers the state has launched a website, .

The website will eventually have all educator job openings on the site, and there will be a common statewide application and access to information.
