Education Briefs NCSS Teacher Job Fair
Event set for March 1 at Eastside High
The Newton County School System will hold its annual Teacher Job Fair from 9 a.m. 2 p.m. March 1 at Eastside High School.
Principals and representatives from each school in the system will be on hand to interview prospective employees and answer any questions applicants might have.
Donald Dunnigan, associate superintendent for human resources, said the system needs to fill vacancies created due to retirements and resignations as well as newly create positions and for the opening of the new elementary school in August.
“Our school system has a lot to offer both new and experienced teachers,” Dunnigan said. “This will be an excellent opportunity for teachers to meet and interview with school principals, learn more information about the school system and obtain information on current job openings and requirements.”
Dunnigan added while recruiting occurs throughout the school year, the job fair provides the best opportunity for prospective employees to see what Newton County has to offer.
No registration is required for admission, but each teacher is strongly encouraged to bring multiple copies of his or her resume.
