Greater Philadelphia Teacher Job Fair 2007

Believe it our not, plans are starting to move quickly ahead for the 2007-08 school year. I have written here about the fact that the school budget process is well underway and next week we should have our school calendar approved for the upcoming school year.

Today, Woodbury will be participating in the Greater Philadelphia Teacher Job Fair 2007 located at the Wachovia Center. There are 189 employers registered, and last year over 2200 teacher candidates attended.

This is the first of a number of teacher job fair efforts in which we will participate. Our goal is to accumulate our lists of potential candidates for teacher openings for the next school year. Some of the job fairs will be more subject specific and there is one that is specific to Gloucester County. Today’s job fair is one largest that we will attend.

This effort is the most important work that we do as school administrators – finding the best teachers to join the Woodbury faculty. And, we feel that we have an advantage in terms of the unique schools where students all walk; the diverse student body; a supportive school community; and the historic, “county seat” feel of the city with a close proximity to Philadelphia and other locations.

For now, we are looking for quality teachers in all fields. We will develop a more specific list of anticipated openings in the coming weeks.
