Hanford responds to substitute teacher shortage with job fair Thursday

December 09, 2014

Hanford-ExteriorThe Hanford campus of Brandman University will host its first ever job fair aimed at creating more substitute teachers in the San Joaquin Valley.

Shelsy Hutchinson, who manages community outreach at the Hanford Campus, said past, current and prospective Brandman University students have been encouraged to attend as well as the community at large. It’s being held Thursday, Dec. 11, from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Hanford Campus, 325 Mall Drive, Hanford.

“There’s a dire need for teachers and subs,” said Hutchinson. In addition to linking qualified people to King County school districts, the fair will provide information about how to qualify for becoming a substitute teacher. A second fair is scheduled for January in Visalia.

Hutchinson said there are more than 100 fewer people on the substitute teacher list this year compared to last year.
