ROBERTSDALE — Baldwin County Public Schools saw a record-breaking number of applicants during its recent Teacher Job Fair, held Thursday, April 14, at the Robertsdale Coliseum.
The school system began hosting annual job fairs five years ago. Since then, each year has brought in more candidates. According to school system staff, last year's record was broken by 10 a.m.
Teacher applicants lined up at booths to meet with principals and staff from each Baldwin County school. System principals are responsible for the hiring process, then turn in their recommendations, said Tiffany Wilson, department director.
Along with teacher applicants from Alabama and surrounding states, students were mixed in the crowd as well. Student members of Robertsdale High School's Future Teachers Club visited the job fair to get some first-hand experience by participating in mock interviews with principals and staff.
The school system is also looking to fill job positions including bus drivers, cafeteria workers and teachers' aides.
