Job Fair Features Many Educator Positions

REDMOND, OR -- A special job fair aims to help educators find positions at local districts.

The Central Oregon Regional Educator Network hosts Thursday’s event at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds.

“We are definitely looking for classroom teachers. We are also looking for other educational positions, special education teachers, counselors, school psychologists, educational assistants to some of those classified positions,” Kimberly Strong, from the High Desert Education Service District, says there will be over a dozen prospective employers, “We're going to have 11 different participating school districts as well as some community resources. And so, it's an opportunity for local educator candidates to come on out and get to know some of our regional districts. High Desert ESD will be out there. They are always looking to recruit substitute teachers. So, there's a lot of different opportunities for folks in Central Oregon.”

She tells KBND News it is free to attend, but advanced registration is suggested, “Folks can do that by visiting centraloregoneducators.org and out of the 1st 100 people to register, we're going to put them in a raffle for some cool Central Oregon themed prizes.”

The event is from 1 pm to 6 pm Thursday in the Middle and South Sister buildings at the fairgrounds.
