This is not the first time Nevada hired Filipino SPED teachers. They have already recruited 84 and 105 teachers in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The are looking for the qualified applicants between the ages of 23 and 30 that will undergo a training program which includes not only classroom management but also individualized lesson planning. 

The shortage of special education teachers in the United States prompted Nevada to look for more teachers in other countries including the Philippines.

"We follow the same curriculum with the U.S. standards and the Philippine standards. That's the advantage of the Filipino teachers so they can teach anywhere else," Dr. Michael Santa Juana of the Fil-American Educators of Nevada said.

The base salary for new teachers in Clark County is $40,900 were they will be provided with J1 visas who are willing to work for 3 years in Las Vegas. The contract may still be renewed for another two years. 

"There's a huge difference in terms of the basic salary and in terms of the benefits as well. I miss my family but for a better future and greener pasture," said teacher Jan Salazar.

Currently, there are 320,000 students in Clark County School District (CCSD) and one of the largest and fastest growing districts in the United States.
