Hawaii schools to participate in teacher job fair

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On Saturday, Hawaii's newly prepared teachers from nine institutes of higher education will have the unique opportunity to meet and interview with schools across the state.

Principals from the Department of Education, independent (HAIS) and charter schools, will be in attendance. The Hawaii Teachers Standard Board will also be there to answer licensing questions.

This is an unprecedented event, given the magnitude of coordination among the private and public institutions participating.

The teacher job fair will take place Saturday, April 30 at the Honolulu Country Club. Elementary school candidates will be interviewed between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Secondary school candidates will be interviewed between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. K-12 licenses will be interviewed between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The event is being hosted by the Teacher Education Coordinating Committee (TECC), which is co-chaired by UHM College of Education Dean Christine Sorensen and Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi.
