The Arkansas Department of Education will host the 2006 Educators Career Fair on Saturday, May 13, 2006, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Airport Holiday Inn located at I-440 Airport Exit in Little Rock.

The Educators Career Fair is designed to assist school districts in the recruitment of licensed teachers and administrators for hard-to-staff vacancies, and assist licensed teachers seeking employment, wanting to add an area of licensure, or earn an advanced degree. Licensed educators from in-state and out-of-state are invited to attend. College and university education preparation programs and the Arkansas Department of Education programs are also invited to participate. These programs will provide information to educators regarding advancement of careers in education. This event is for licensed teachers and administrators or new graduates to be licensed by August of 2006.

Superintendents, Education Service Cooperative Directors, Principals and School District Hiring Personnel are encouraged to register as exhibitors (flyers attached). Information can be shared with licensed teachers wishing to interview with local districts, earn an advanced degree, or add an area of licensure. Participating exhibitors will be provided with individual booth space to display information and meet with prospective teachers and administrators.

Registration is free but booth space is limited. Registration includes access to wireless Internet service and lunch for two (2) booth staff. Electricity is available by request only. To reserve a booth, complete the attached registration form and return by April 28th.

The attached flyers may be utilized by School Districts and distributed to teachers as needed.
