Yesterday we had approximately 250 teacher candidates participate in the Fall Education Career Fair. The students were well prepared and eager to speak with prospective employers. As you can see from the photos the Union Ballroom was a happening place.
This year will be a unique one for our graduates from the teacher education program. Because the School of Education decided to go back to the four year undergraduate teaching degree we will have two classes graduating this year. One with the former five year degree and one with the new four year degree. Bottom line that means we will have well over 200 graduates looking for teaching jobs this year.
Our event yesterday kicked off our recruitment events for the year for our teaching candidates. In March we will hold the Teacher Interview Day that will provide candidates the opportunity to meet with school districts and other organizations looking for teachers in one-on-one interviews.
