On Thursday, March 19, more than 20 school districts from five states will be participating in the Teacher Education Career Fair scheduled for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Logan Hall. The annual fair allows students from Tuskegee and surrounding colleges to explore employment opportunities in the education sector, talk with a multitude of school districts in one setting, and if invited to do so, interview on-site for a career opportunity.
The Teacher Education Career Fair is open to Tuskegee University students and alumni, as well as students from nearby colleges and universities. Graduating seniors in the School of Education — as well as other disciplines including business, sciences, math and health sciences — are strongly encouraged to attend.
