Forsyth County Schools holding teacher job fair Saturday

WEST FORSYTH — The Forsyth County school system’s annual educator job fair is set for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at West Forsyth High School.

The event is open to certified educators or those who will be eligible for teaching certification for the 2016-17 school year who want to work for a public school in the district.

“We are projected to again add approximately 1,800 students next school year,” said Cindy Salloum, the system’s associate superintendent of human resources and legal services. “We will be hiring teachers for the new growth, as well as to fill our annual vacancies due to retirements or resignations.”

Part of that growth is the opening of two new schools this fall.

Brandywine Elementary and DeSana Middle are under construction between McFarland Parkway, Union Hill Road and Hwy. 9 in southwest Forsyth.

“Last year, we welcomed 700 applicants at the job fair, so we are expecting a similar turnout [this year],” Salloum said. “We will have our new principals for ’16-’17 in place for the job fair, as well as the teams for the new Brandywine and DeSana, to complement our talented group of current school administrators and teacher leaders.”

Those attending the event are asked to bring a one-page resume to provide to the human resources department and several copies of a resume or portfolio to provide each school.

Pre-registration is not required. The school is at 4155 Drew Road.
