INSTANT JOBS POSSIBLE AT
TEACHER RECRUITING FAIR
May 04, 2015
MARION COUNTY

For the first time since the recession started in 2008, Marion County Public Schools is rolling out the carpet to hire new teachers.

The district will hold a Teacher Recruiting Fair Friday and Saturday, May 15-16, at the College of Central Florida’s Ewers Center in Ocala. The Fair runs 5PM–9PM Friday and 9AM-1PM Saturday. Registration is required.

Interested teachers can learn more about the event by visiting http://www.marion.k12.fl.us/dept/per/fair.cfm

. To attend the job fair, teachers must be certified or eligible for certification by Florida’s Department of Education.

Attendees should bring a copy of their Florida Department of Education certification and proof they passed the subject area exam if their certification is in Social Sciences, Elementary Education, Pre-K/Primary, Art or Music. If attendees do not hold Florida Certification or a valid statement of eligibility, copies of college transcripts, exam scores and any valid out-of-state certificates are required. Attendees may also bring additional employment materials including current resume, teaching experience, letters of reference, etc. Certification advisors will be available at the fair to assist.

Teachers looking for jobs in Marion County Public Schools can earn a starting salary of $36,300 - $42,800 based on the current pay scale. This is in addition to health and life insurance benefits, sick days, and other employee incentives.

At the fair, potential teachers will speak face-to-face with those making the hiring decisions for teachers – school principals. Dozens of principals will have authority to hire on-the-spot provided candidates have all their materials in-hand or previously submitted online.

Marion County Public Schools is looking for teachers at all levels K-12 but is specifically in great need of guidance counselors and art, music, library media, physical education and ESE teachers (Exceptional Student Education). Plenty of opportunities also exist for math and science teachers, especially at the secondary level.

The Ewers Center is located on the College of Central Florida campus at 3001 SW College Road in Ocala.
