The Craven County District held the Teacher Recruitment Fair Saturday afternoon. All 25 of their public schools were in attendance. Some of the school systems high priority needs are high school math and science teachers along with exceptional children teachers for all grades.
“I think it shows that there are a lot of job potentials, “explained Elizabeth Sansoucie.
Sansoucie says the event is a great idea. She was one of many teachers who participated in the teacher recruitment fair Saturday at New Bern high School. “I’m here just to network and meet a bunch of different teachers and possibly maybe get an interview hopefully and just get my name out there and look at all the different schools that we have in our community. “
Another candidate says he’s ready to find a permanent position.
“A lot of resumes and I brought a lot of cover letters and letters of references,” Brendan Lahdi said. Lahdi even got a surprise interview while at the recruitment fair. “A partial interview by one of the schools, and that was videotaped, which I found kind of interesting that she could remember me and the things I said.”
The principal at Roger Bell Elementary School says videotaping is a great tool.
“I want to be personal with the candidates and get to know them as quickly as I can, but it also helps me remember them because so many people are coming through today. When I go back I will be able to reference them and who I talked to and get a snapshot of their personality with education,” explained Pamela Holloway.
The Craven County Public Schools are looking for math and science teachers along with exceptional children teachers for all grades. The event today gave teachers the opportunity to mingle with the Craven County District
“I feel confident that I have taken everything I’ve learned with the credential program and that hopefully I can find a position somewhere in Craven County, “explained Sansoucie.
