Rockford Public Schools held a job fair Monday for anyone who was qualified and interested in teaching positions.

 

Executive Principal for Jefferson High School Don Rundall was very excited about the applicants who attended.

“I think we’ve had a pretty good turnout this morning," Rundall said. "I’ve actually already filled a couple of positions I’ve needed filled, so I’m very excited with the turnout we’ve had; and the level of applicants is pretty high.”

The Rockford Public School District is hosting a teacher job fair for those looking to move forward in their careers in sculpting young minds.

Some specific areas of teaching will be special targets, but Mercedes Brain – the Director of Talent Acquisition for Rockford Public Schools – says that shouldn’t discourage anyone from attending the fair.

Nine hours of contract negotiations between the Rockford School district and its teachers have ended: teachers will hit the picket lines Thursday morning.
