in Community/Education/Featured/Headline

The San Mateo County Office of Education is inviting the community to attend its Teacher Recruitment Fair on March 17.

The fair will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Office of Education located at 101 Twin Dolphin Drive in Redwood City.

Administrators, teachers and human resource personnel from 21 of the 23 San Mateo County school districts will attend the fair to speak with prospective teachers.

At last year’s event, more than 350 prospective teachers attended.

“As a result of coming to last year’s recruitment fair, many prospective teachers ended up getting hired and we anticipate a similar result this year as most districts have openings for teachers,” said Lori Musso, Associate Superintendent, Human Resources/ Teacher and Administrator Development at San Mateo County Office of Educations.

In addition to talking to school administrators and teachers, prospective teachers will also offer workshops on different certification pathways, how to become a substitute and what new teachers can expect from induction programs. Credential analysts will be on hand to assist applicants from out of state or those looking to switch to a teaching career.
