MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Middle Georgia teaching agency wants to hire 200 teachers.
The Regional Educational Service Agency holds a teacher job fair at Westside High School on February 23rd. The event at 10 a.m.
The agency needs teachers for:
- Peach, and
- Twiggs counties.
In 2017, the US Department of Education predicted a nationwide teacher shortage. Now in 2019, the demand comes to Middle Georgia.
Leadership Developmental Specialist Dan Ray says that they want:
- current teachers,
- recent college graduates, and
- those who want to change careers.
Schools want to fill K-12 teaching positions for the 2019/2020 school year.
“There’s a lot of really nice pieces that, to me, are very attractive for folks that are looking to relocate or have their first-time job in teaching here in the Middle Georgia area,” Ray says.
Furthermore, principals also look to hire counselors, media specialists, and assistant principals.
