Bilingual Student Teacher Pathway

There is acute need for bilingual teachers in Oregon. Chemeketa has designed a special path with tuition assistance for Spanish-speaking students who pursue a degree in education. Students must demonstrate oral and written proficiency and a commitment to becoming a teacher.

To apply, view Chemeketa’s part-time hourly positions and complete the online application for the position “STUDENT ONLY – Bilingual Student Teacher.”

Students also must take a Spanish oral and written assessment. Contact the Education Department at 503.399.5140 to find out when the assessment is held.
