To help with the hiring of teachers for the 2022-23 school year, Williamson County Schools will be hosting a district-wide career fair at Ravenwood High School Saturday, March 5, from 9-11 a.m.
Interested applicants will have the opportunity to speak with representatives from all 51 of the district's schools.
With teacher shortages across the nation and in both WCS and the Franklin Special School District, the career fair could present a good opportunity for those interested in an education career, per a release.
"I love teaching in Williamson County Schools," said Hillsboro School Teacher of the Year Landon Hardison. "Growing up here, I have an appreciation of the impact our wonderful community of teachers and mentors can have on shaping student lives.
“I am humbled by the opportunity to give back to the community that influenced me in such a positive way. To put it simply, our students, parents and teachers make WCS the best district in the state to learn and grow together."
Attendees should bring their résumés and dress professionally, says the release. There is a hiring bonus for hard-to-fill positions, including secondary math and science teachers, world language teachers and special education positions.
