Cobb schools to host teacher job fairs

The Cobb County School District will host two job fairs this week to hire certified teachers. The fairs will be held Tuesday, March 26 at Kennesaw Mountain High School and Thursday, March 28 at Wheeler High School. 

These fairs will give prospective teachers the opportunity to learn more about educating children in a “diverse and dynamic school district,” Cobb schools said. 

The March 26 job fair will be held at Kennesaw Mountain High School at 1898 Kennesaw Due West Road NW and is reserved for middle and high school positions. 

"As the first district in the state to offer teacher contracts and identify our needs for the next school year, the district is able to hire the very best to be part of the Cobb team,” the system said Monday. “At each job fair, our principals are able to interview and hire on-the-spot. As we were last year, we anticipate filling 100 percent of our teacher openings before students walk in the door in August."

Tuesday’s fair opens only to current school district employees from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and to general applicants from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Applicants can register for the middle and high school job fair by clicking here

The elementary school job fair is set for March 28 at Wheeler High School at 375 Holt Road NE in Marietta. Exclusive access to Cobb employees will be from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the job fair opens to all other applicants from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The registration link for the elementary school job fair is located here.

“Our job fairs help us hire the very best so we can strengthen our team of talented educators who continue to make Cobb the best place to teach, lead, and learn,” said Cobb Schools Superintendent Chris Ragsdale. “This year, we were once again the first metro district to issue teaching contracts, which has allowed us to identify areas of need and begin looking for tomorrow’s top teachers to support our vision of One Team, One Goal: Student Success.”
