Potential educators are invited to attend Wayne County Public Schools' annual teacher job fair on Saturday, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the gymnasium at Goldsboro High School.

Prospective teachers can learn about programs and job opportunities at the district's 31 schools. Human resources representatives will also be on hand to answer questions about licensure, salary, benefits and scheduling.

Principals from the county's schools will provide a list of openings at the individual schools and will conduct on-site interviews, officials said.

"The annual job fair is a great way for newly certified and veteran teachers to meet the high caliber administrators and staff at our schools as well as get a glimpse of the Wayne County area where they could one day potentially teach," said Marvin McCoy, assistant superintendent for human resource services. "More importantly, qualified teachers with an interest or desire to work for our district may find a classroom opening that they can fill."

Wayne County Chamber of Commerce will also be represented by members of its teacher recruitment/retention committee, and will provide snacks and refreshments for those who attend.
