Albuquerque Public Schools (APS), like districts across the country, is facing a teacher shortage.

Superintendent Raquel Reedy gave the Board of Education a report recently, saying there were 427 total vacancies including teachers at the time, 10 more open positions than last year, with fewer candidates wanting the jobs.

To spur recruitment, the district looked outside the U.S., including to the Philippines for the first time, in order to fill empty spots. That resulted in about 60 Filipino teachers hired by APS, which has been working on the transfers since early May, according to Stanley Keith, APS personnel analyst and recruiter.
