Teachers job fair Saturday in Fairfield

Cooperative Educational Services of Trumbull is hosting an opportunity for prospective teachers interested in secondary, special education and specialist fields on Saturday, April 22, at Fairfield Warde High School starting at 8 a.m. The Fairfield County Professional Educator Recruitment Fair will feature representatives from 19 districts and charter schools from Fairfield and New Haven counties meeting with jobseekers.

Qualified teachers should bring only a resume. Some interviews will be held during a second session that starts at noon.
