On April 3, representatives from the Stow-Munroe Falls City School District participated in the Kent State University Teacher Employment Day job fair at the main campus in Kent. On April 4, the district also participated in the Northeast Ohio Teacher Education Day (NOTED) at the John S. Knight Center in Akron. The district attended both events in order to find the highest-caliber teachers to fill open positions for the upcoming school year.
The district made quite a buzz at both events, drawing large crowds and a consistent line throughout the day. Over the two days, district representatives met with more than 300 applicants.
"The high-quality reputation of our district made us stand out to applicants," said Chris DiMauro, director of human resources. "Candidates are drawn to the Stow-Munroe Falls School District because of our great location and the positive support our teachers receive from the community."
Both events were open to job-seekers from over 14 local colleges and universities. The district was one of 50 school districts, education technology companies and ESCs from across the country at the Kent State University Teacher Employment Day and one of 100 school districts represented at NOTED.
"We are fortunate to be located in an area that has a large number of colleges and universities," DiMauro said. "Rarely do we experience a lack of quality candidates, but we were amazed by the number of outstanding applicants that we met at both events."
Stow-Munroe Falls City School District is currently in the process of filling 7-10 open positions for the 2017-18 school year.
