California's new Common Core standards will be on the minds of many who come to the Educator Job Fair on Friday, April 25.
The second annual event connects local schools and districts with new teachers and administrator candidates from SSU's School of Education. The event runs from 1 to 6 p.m. in the Student Center ballroom.
Dean of Education Carlos Ayala says the demands for teachers is opening up a little more each year reversing a long time trend. Budgets are more stable and teacher retirements are on the rise as school districts look for new teachers.
"They are thinking about how these new hires can help them in the curricular transition and implementation of the Common Core standards," he says. "Many of our faculty are already helping districts with the transition and I believe that our teacher candidates will be ready to support districts in that transition."
